John started with the company by answering an ad in an Atlanta newspaper. He grew as a leader during the 1980s as the company, led by Art Williams, expanded all over North America. John helped navigate the company in the years following its acquisition by Sandy Weill and what became Citigroup. He became president in 1995 and co-CEO in 1999. He and Rick Williams created one of the most successful IPOs of the decade.

Guiding the sales force through these monumental changes, while also working to keep morale high, developed John’s passion and talent for motivating others and allowed him to inspire and empower over a million people during his career. In addition to his stellar reputation as a businessman, John has made a name for himself as a top-rated speaker, renowned for using his down-home delivery and humor to provide insight and wisdom on leadership, personal development and success.

Today, the former co-CEO and thought leader is focusing on his passion of helping people become the best they can be.
