Personal Biography Statement

An experienced executive, entrepreneur and business advisor, John brings over 35 years of experience to MSU Denver and Business Consulting.

With advanced degrees in physics and engineering, John began his career as a consulting engineer focusing on power and alternative energy in the electric power industry.

John then moved on to GE where he focused on technical training, service and sales on a global basis for the locomotive and mining businesses.

Following GE, John moved to a Siemens project team building a new advanced manufacturing plant in Arizona, and was program lead of a high tech joint venture with a company out of Europe while driving sales and business development.

Nortel recruited John for business development in their fiber optic division. Success lead to working in a Nortel skunk works formed to develop telecom/datacom products and services for the Cable TV marketplace.

John was then recruited as VP - Special Projects & Marketing for a world leading contract manufacturing company to help turn around the company and position it for transition.

John then moved back to Nortel as a VP - Cable Media Networks to continue to grow the business he had left and facilitate the merger of a large data acquisition into his group resulting in P&L responsibility for a $430M division.

John resigned from Nortel to work in the Venture Capital space, where he successfully funded technologies out of Sandia. This lead to business consulting and an M&A firm which he sold in 2008 to spent 4 years at Apple building a technology B2B sales team targeting the small/medium business market.

Feeling constrained, John elected to re-enter the business consulting space where he again looks forward to coaching, and providing exit planning strategies and services to technology based business owners while working with Metropolitan State University, guiding MSU technology students on their engineering career journey.
