John builds great companies. Over the last two decades, John has been sought after by Boards and Private Equity firms to transform businesses, establish and execute M&A strategies and drive profitable growth.

Throughout his career, John has worked in small hyper growth companies as well as Fortune 50 companies and has maximized shareholder returns through delivering strong operational results, two IPOs and two strategic exits.
