Chris A. Johnson, CPA/PFS, Tax Manager

May 2, 2016

Chris recently moved to Cheyenne, Wyoming and started work at McGee, Hearne & Paiz, LLP (MHP) in July 2015.  He graduated from the University of Wyoming in 1996 and has been serving small business and high wealth clients for the last 19 years in Denver, Fort Collins, and now Cheyenne.  He specializes in accounting, income tax planning and tax preparation for corporations, partnerships, and individuals.

Ron Nimmo shared, "We are very fortunate to have added someone of Chris' caliber to our Tax Department.  He has fit in very well with our staff and is a great technical resource.  He will also be an excellent resource for our clients."

As a Tax Manager, Chris' primary role is to serve the clients of MHP.  This is accomplished on a daily basis through teamwork with other MHP staff and management, and careful evaluation and assessment of the client's needs or concerns.  When asked what he loves about his role, Chris shares, "The people!  My purpose in life is to bring glory to God by making the lives of others around me easier and better.  Every day is a new opportunity to serve those around me….and that never gets boring!"

Chris values spending time with family and friends both indoors and outdoors. Specifically, he enjoys playing cards/games, horseshoes, mountain biking, snowboarding, camping, and other various outdoor activities.  Chris and his family are excited to be joining the Cheyenne community and are looking forward to getting involved and serving with their fellow citizens of Laramie County.

We asked Chris what he thinks of being back in Wyoming, "I love being back in Wyoming!  If you would have asked us several years ago if we would be moving back here, we would have said 'no way José.'  Our lives have been so enriched beyond anything we could have imagined or express in words that we now realize that moving back to Wyoming was the best decision we could have ever made!"
