Bill Johnstone, 2017 Inductee


Bill is a leader in many areas – law, education, business – and puts that leadership into action not only as Chairman of the Board of D.A. Davidson, but as a statewide servant of Montana. Under Bill’s guidance, D.A. Davidson has grown tremendously. Since 2000, their employee base has doubled and many of the company’s growth metrics have more than tripled: revenues, number of clients, client assets, and number of firm offices. He has served on numerous boards across the state and was tapped by Governor Bullock to co-chair the Main Street Montana initiative and then to serve on the Montana Board of Regents. Building Montana is his conviction!
