In 1970, Samuel C. Johnson, fourth generation leader of one of
the most successful privately-owned companies in the world (SC
Johnson), recognized the need for a different kind of bank in his
Racine, Wis., community. Not long after, he founded one based on
his vision of unmatched personal service and a promise to treat
clients like family.
Now led by Sam's daughter, Helen Johnson-Leipold, we've since
grown from a single bank in Racine to a comprehensive financial
services company with a reputation for making a positive impact in
the communities we serve and in the lives of our clients and
The underlying principles that have made Johnson Financial Group
so successful are the same values that serve all of the Johnson
family's enterprises. A high level of integrity and accountability
and the strong belief in the dignity of all people are at the heart
of everything we do; and, as a privately-held company, we also

than the next quarter's earnings report. This way of doing business
has stood the test of time, trends and challenges.
These ideals are put into action everyday by experienced,
dedicated associates as they provide each client with an
exceptional level of personalized service and responsible financial
solutions. Their commitment to building meaningful, long-term
relationships with our customers has set us apart in our industry.
They are the inspiration behind what we call the "Johnson

Offerings & Expertise
We're a comprehensive financial services company, not a bank that
offers other financial products as "add-ons." We have true
expertise in banking, trust, insurance and investment solutions,
and use a team approach - led by a relationship manager - to
provide clients with the best of everything through Johnson Bank,
Johnson Insurance and Johnson Investment Services. Mega financials

personalized service we offer. Smaller, community financials don't
provide the same breadth or sophistication of products and

Johnson Insurance and Johnson Investment S.A. Although the
individual companies have distinct specialties, they often work
together as one for the benefit of clients. Experts in each
discipline are available at most locations.
