Brian L. Johnson, CEO, has been selected as 1 of the 10 inaugural recipients of the ‘Leaders & Legacies’ award recognized by Prairie Business magazine. The award will be the first in what will become an annual Prairie Business tradition in years to come.

‘Leaders & Legacies’ was created to recognize some of the most successful and influential business executives across North Dakota, South Dakota, and western Minnesota. It acknowledges the journey each recipient has taken to find success for not only themselves, but their companies and their communities. Most importantly, it celebrates their accomplishments in business over the years through their creativity, passion, and leadership.

“It’s been important to me to remain focused on empowering our employees and bettering the places we live by supporting our communities.”

Brian has served as CEO since 2011, nurturing Choice’s consistent growth and innovation across the Midwest and in banking—all while never losing sight of the people or the communities we serve.

“I’m proud of the values and the People First culture that we’ve cultivated here at Choice. As we’ve grown it’s been important to me to remain focused on empowering our employees and bettering the places we live by supporting our communities.”

The ‘Leaders & Legacies’ award will be presented to Brian on May 16 at Prairie Business’ celebration event in Fargo, ND. Prairie Business will also be honoring the Top 25 Women in Business and 40 under 40.

The full list of winners and their stories will be published in the July issue of Prairie Business magazine.
