Joe Johnston • Director of Business Development (OC / LA)

Joe Johnston

  • Provide a brief overview of your professional background: After graduating from San Diego State University (Go Aztecs!), I spent several years working in Audit, Tax, Managerial and Fund Accounting prior to joining TGG. At TGG, I have had the pleasure of supporting businesses from the startup size through middle market growth and transaction. While industry agnostic, some of my favorite clients have been in the nonprofit, cannabis, surgical implant manufacturing and professional services industries.
  • What do you enjoy most about working at TGG? One of the things that I enjoy the most about working at TGG is the endless possibility to help our clients and teach junior leaders. Over my years at TGG, I have had the chance to help nonprofits apply for multimillion-dollar grants for afterschool programs, teach clients and accountants about the benefits of accrual basis accounting and cash flow management and find creative methods and solutions to help business owners accomplish their goals.
  • How do you live TGG’s mission? Making business owners’ lives better through excellent financial management is accomplished when the accounting team understands the client’s goals, and is proactive, creative and unrelenting in pursuing them. When I work with my clients, this is exactly the approach that I take.
  • What do you enjoy doing when you are not working? When I’m not working, I enjoy watching 80s action movies with my wonderful wife, Yoshiko and our two dogs, Buzz and Jackie. I also enjoy growing fruit in our backyard and playing video games online with friends.
