Meet Brittany Johnson

Brittany joined Whitman Partners in 2022 as Head of Talent for the Human Resources Department.   

She was born and raised in the City of Roses and recently moved back from Nevada. It took only a year away from home before she heeded the call to return to the Pacific Northwest.  

Brittany got her start several years ago at Columbia Sportswear, working in client services and recruitment. She found building relationships with candidates while finding a job match that would boost their careers and improve their socioeconomic status personally rewarding.  

Brittany is new to parenthood, so much of her free time is spent hanging out with her 13-month-old daughter. She is constantly in awe of her daughter’s spirited and vivid personality. Her family takes advantage of living near the Willamette River in Portland, so most days are spent walking along the waterfront, rain or shine.

Fun Facts

  • I know how to drive a Zamboni (an ice resurfacer for ice skating rinks). My first job was working at Valley Ice Arena in Beaverton, Oregon.
  • At a young age, I thought I would work in sports management. I worked for the Winterhawks Hockey Club for many years through high school and college.
