"Charles Johnson, 69, worked in the private sector for 30 years before joining" Michael Leavitt's "team in 1993." Johnson served with Leavitt at the Environmental Protection Agency as chief financial officer, Ceci Connolly wrote in the July 1, 2005, Washington Post.

"A certified public accountant who has served on numerous public and private boards, Johnson ran Leavitt's 2000 reelection campaign. After retiring from the KPMG accounting firm in 1991, he did stints as the head of the governor's Office of Planning and Budget in Utah and then as Leavitt's chief of staff.
