Ohio Elite Extends Partnership with Johnson Investment Counsel

Ohio Elite is proud to announce that we have extended our partnership with Johnson Investment Counsel.  This partnership signals further commitment of two entities continuing to better serve the community.

Johnson Investment Counsel was founded by Timothy E. Johnson, PhD in 1965. With the help of experienced professionals and knowledgeable staff, the firm has grown to become one of Ohio's largest independent wealth management firms. Johnson Investment Counsel serves individuals, corporations, retirement plans, foundations, and endowments.   

"It is both a privilege and an honor to continue our partnership with a company that is founded upon the very same core values that we embody at Ohio Elite." - Tim Lesiak, Ohio Elite's Executive Director of Coaching.  

“Johnson Investment Counsel is a firm that is founded upon their core philosophy of helping people. Combine this with the firm's genuine interest in being involved in the community and you get a company that we are excited to continue a relationship with." - Doug Bracken, Ohio Elite's Girls Director of Coaching.

“It is an absolute pleasure to continue what has become a strong partnership with Ohio Elite. When we again sat down with Tim and Doug, it was readily apparent that Ohio Elite’s culture of excellence and integrity on and off the field distinguishes them in our communities. These attributes align strongly with our values as a firm, and we look forward to a successful partnership.” - Bret Parrish, Managing Director and Principal at Johnson Investment Counsel

The front of all Ohio Elite player uniforms will continue to have the Johnson Investment Counsel name and logo as well as the Ohio Elite logo, visual representation of a strong partnership between two groups that stand firmly behind the people that they serve and the communities in which make this city and state so special.
