Hunt Midwest Hires Vince Johnston as VP, CFO

Hunt Midwest has hired Vince Johnston as VP and CFO-elect. The industry veteran will replace Don Hagan, who will retire on June 30 after 41 years at the company.

“Vince brings more than 25 years of financial experience in the real estate investment and development industry to Hunt Midwest,” said president and CEO Ora Reynolds of Kansas City-based Hunt Midwest. “As we transition Vince into this role, we are confident that his breadth of experience will enhance our team as well as bring a fresh perspective.”

Johnston most recently served 12 years as CFO for Block Real Estate Service and, prior to that, two years as CFO at Cohen-Esrey Real Estate Services. He began his career in Dallas as a staff accountant with Trammell Crow, before returning to his native Kansas City.
