Joe Toppe



“I love athletics, and in particular, the sport of wrestling and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. It’d be impossible for me to give up the double leg takedown or my unbridled love for Greg Maddux.”


In an appropriate business fashion, Joe was contacted via LinkedIn by UBJ publisher Ryan Johnston with the suggestion of writing for our publication.

“I enjoy being part of a high-quality product. Although it is challenging and demanding, it is the best place to be,” he says. “What I like most about working for Community Journals is its community status and the men and women I work with. True professionals, everyone.”

Before he joined us this year, he previously spent time as a journalist with Civitas Media.

When he’s not busy conversing with other professionals (“I believe I can get anyone to talk,” he explains), he’s outside in the sun, poolside or in the gym.
