I worked with John when he was with Heller Ehrman as part of our outside legal team at Qpass (which we eventually sold to Amdocs). One of my responsibilities at Qpass was running Corporate Development where among many things we conducted several acquisitions. I immediately recognized that John uses his significant legal expertise, fundamental understanding of business, and ability to keep pace with demanding corporate development priorities to provide great service to internal or external customers/clients. I would gladly hire him again or be pleased to work with him on the operating side as well.

I had the pleasure of working alongside John during a high growth period at Vertafore. As SVP/Corporate Counsel, John took a pragmatic business first approach to contracts, vendor and employee relations. He could be counted on to look at situations from multiple angles and advise the executive team on potential outcomes and consequences of various actions. An excellent negotiator, John was always able to find middle workable solutions within even the toughest of complex situations.
One of the things I always appreciated about working with John is that he could explain complex and arcane concepts clearly and simply.
John works amazingly hard and takes the "customer serving" aspect of his role seriously.
I highly recommend John as a senior executive and would gladly work with him again in any capacity.
