Tuesday, June 26, 2018

Wipfli LLP (Wipfli), a top 20 national accounting and consulting firm, has announced the appointment of partner Jeffrey M. Johnson, CPA, as its new western region market leader. Johnson is based out of Wipfli’s Oakland, California office and will continue to oversee the firm’s audit and consulting services to health care clients in the northwest while guiding the larger business’s service and industry offerings in its west coast offices.

“Jeff’s tenure at the firm, and his intimate knowledge of Wipfli’s commitment to engaging clients in a holistic manner to better serve their needs, positions him well to lead this geography,” says Wipfli’s managing partner, Rick Dreher. “We look forward to what he can bring to this growing role and market.”

A seasoned leader, Johnson boasts more than 30 years of experience working in health care practice consulting, providing audit, reimbursement and specialized services to this highly complex and ever-changing industry sector.

“With his decades of experience and proven results across the health care industry, Jeff is well-suited to lead our west-coast team,” says Wipfli’s health care practice leader, Steve Thompson. “I am confident that Jeff will continue our track record of delivering consistent, effective results to our clients in his new role.”

A rapidly growing firm, Wipfli’s robust health care industry practice expanded its regional footprint and offerings during the firm’s 2016 combination with California-based firm HFS Consultants, uniting the strengths of two prominent health care practices. The joining of the firms presented Wipfli with key opportunities to expand its physical presence in the western United States and to provide an even greater breadth and depth of services and resources to its clients.

Johnson holds a Bachelor of Business Administration in accounting from Iowa State University.
