He has a true passion for growing businesses, and some of his past achievements have been chronicled in the Harvard Business Review and Academy of Management Executives Journal.
John spent the better part of the past two decades in the building materials world as VP of Engineered Materials at BBA Fiberweb and then President of the Structural Adhesives Group at IPS Corporation. Under John’s leadership, both companies saw huge topline and bottom line growth, developing sustainable organic growth coupled with multiple bolt-on acquisitions. John has a passion for home building and sees the opportunity to bring together work and passion.
