Chris Stakich - CEO & Chairman of the Board at Rustic Pathways
"John was extremely helpful in developing the Rustic Pathways strategy and marketing plan. In addition, he developed some key relationships and managed our PR efforts, both which will pay off in dividends over the years. I highly recommend John if you need someone to come in and push your thinking."
Charlie Horsey - CEO, MKTG USA & Global Brand President, MKTG Worldwide
"I am extremely proud to vouch for John. He is an excellent leader with enormous management experience form start-ups to Fortune 100 Companies. His rigor and discipline is second to none and is committed to excellence in all he does."
Malcolm Mead - President/CEO, The Mead Group, Inc.
"I am an established consultant doing work for Fortune 500 companies. Throughout my career, there have been moments when I have been at a cross-roads and John has given me candid, fair, and clear advice that has helped me to figure out how to proceed in my career. It was John who explained to me that I am a "soft seller" (I'm actually quite good at it, or so I've heard). It was John who guided me to make connections that lead to a multi-year relationship with a major clothing brand. It was John who gave me insight that allowed me to refocus my private investment strategy, avoiding bifurcating my brand presence. John is a gentle hand who doesn't "force the answer upon you", but rather sits with you and points to an area where you might focus and examine for yourself -- an approach that I have found demonstrably effective in the process of building my multi-million dollar consulting firm."
Rick Arnstein - Founder & President, Team Arnstein.
"John is super smart, and experienced in running business teams. He is a wonderful human being that has tremendous leadership skills, managing both up and down. He is technically and technologically versed and quite proficient in a range of operating systems. I highly recommend him."
David Arnold – Founder & President, DMA Productions
"John is a detailed, well organized strategic marketing executive who is one of the best operations minds I have worked with. He is a practical thinker who consistently looks at ways to better systems and processes. He manages by example and pushes his teams to deliver the best product at the best price. Our work together over the past ten years has been highly successful and a great deal of fun. John strives for perfection and innovation in all his work - he demands a great deal from himself and his partners."
Greg Pedone – Founder & President, The Pedone Group
"John is a rare combination of a strategic leader who can manage effectively up and down an organization. I worked for John for several years and he helped me grow professionally and personally. He made an impact on our business and on our people. John focuses on both the WHAT as well as the HOW. He is a proven leader in all environments: startups. midsize, big corporations, agency-side and client-side. We need more leaders like John and I highly recommend him for any company looking for a superstar executive to take them to the next level."
