Wipfli LLP announced that Jeff Johnson
, a healthcare industry veteran with more than 20 years of experience, has been named the managing partner of the firm’s Spokane office. In this role, Johnson will be responsible for continuing to build the practice in the Spokane office and helping develop the resources in the market.
“Jeff brings a wealth of experience in the health care industry to the Spokane office,” said Rick Dreher
