Supporting Kaseware’s Success
Following his career in public service, John began his second career in the private sector focused on business development, sales, and consulting at Kaseware. While many of his former colleagues transitioned into operational roles in the private sector, John chose to pursue sales and business development. His decision was driven by a desire to leverage his expertise in a new way, while still contributing to the field he’s dedicated his life to – security. He is able to apply his over three decades of experience and knowledge of public sector security dynamics and requirements, along with his international experience, into creating effective security software solutions.
John first joined Kaseware as an Advisory Board Member in 2020, and then transitioned to full-time, becoming the Executive Vice President.
