John stepped into this industry in 1990 and quickly developed a love for the industry that would span his career. Starting as a driver, John quickly worked his way up the ladder to outside sales. Although the journey from driver to outside sales was difficult, John relished the challenge and has found success in his position of outside sales representative ever since. John believes that customer service and a solid team are paramount to success and 20+ years later he continues to raise the bar in the PVF industry. As a customer focused salesman, John approaches each day with the mentality of "what kind of service would I like if I were that customer?" When he is not serving customers and expanding his product knowledge, John likes to build things, spend time with his family, and ride his motorcycle. John also loves to listen and talk to the elder generation because they have wonderful lessons and stories to tell.
