Five years ago, Brian Johnson joined HBF’s staff as our Program Director. He was no stranger to the HBF at that time; in fact, he had served as a Project Captain for HBF for the two years prior. Our crew is thankful for all that he brings to our community, but especially his leadership, expertise, and innovation.
“Brian is a magical unicorn! As a member of our crew, he is fantastic! But the passion he brings to his work is a true life-changer for our clients.” – Lauren Knudsen, HBF Development Director
In celebration of his 5-year work anniversary we asked Brian if he would like a present. In typical Brian fashion he said, “Of course, I could use a builder who can take on a big project! Then we can help more people.” Always thinking about someone else is one of the best ways to characterize Brian.
“Brian has been instrumental in taking HBF’s program to the next level, both with service to our clients and efficiencies behind the scenes. The growth we’ve seen, and impact we’ve had in the last 3 years is a direct reflection of Brian’s expertise and contributions to HBF and our community. We are so fortunate to have him on our crew!” – Beth Forbes, HBF Executive Director
Brian is a steadfast and dedicated resource for HBF’s clients. He can build a ramp, train a new crew, and sit down for a live television broadcast. There is no job too lofty or too small and his co-workers know that they can count on him. Brian is such a joy to work with!
“Oh man! I just feel like this person is so deserving. I want to do something! Anything to help.”
The above is a quote from Brian! It is not a quote we had to ask for, this is actually something he said in a staff meeting. “Anything to help” is the mantra by which Brian lives his life.
Thank you, Brian! Happy work anniversary!
