Susanne Johnston serves as Alongside’s Business Manager on a volunteer basis, working in our office many hours each week. Before retiring, Sue and her husband Jack owned and operated their 60-year-old family-owned business, Johnstons & Associates, a national award-winning Point-of-Purchase Display company which designed and manufactured displays and POP advertising for national brand name companies such as Kellogg, Whirlpool, and the J.M. Smucker Company. For many years Sue served as a Director and the Treasurer of Interchange Youth Help Services in Allegan County, a mentoring service for at-risk youth, and she has also served in leadership positions in her church, including serving as an elder, a trustee, church moderator, and church treasurer. It’s a great blessing to have Sue serving as our Business Manager!
