About Preston Johnson
I started my career with Thrivent in March of 2001. I decided to become an associate with Thrivent for a couple of reasons:
- My father worked for Thrivent for 47 years. I always respected how his clients depended on his advice. I wanted to provide that same clarity to those around me. I love that my career puts you, the client, and your needs at the forefront of every decision.
- Thrivent is guided by your purpose and priorities, which allows me to have a transparent relationship with you. That is the integrity and compassion I base my life around—seeing it modeled through a growing company is a breath of fresh air.
Outside of work, my life is consumed with family, fishing, golf, and my two crazy dogs. I have Charlie (a Basset Hound who is aging gracefully) and Phoenix (a Labrador Retriever puppy)—they keep me on my toes, that is for sure!
Education & Experience
I graduated from the University of Wisconsin – Eau Claire in 1997 with a comprehensive major in Resource Management. I worked at The Wichita Eagle (newspaper) in Wichita, Kansas for 4 years before joining Thrivent.
