John joined CSHQA in 1988 as part of the architectural studio. Within three years he became a stockholder, the first step to becoming a leader in the company. He was elected VP of Operations in 2002, a role in which he served until transitioning into the Executive VP in 2012, a position he held for the next 11 years until the company restructured to be 100% employee owned. John’s experience—including serving as an ESOP trustee after the company’s transition to employee ownership—has led to extensive knowledge of the inner workings of CSHQA.
John sees his role as a leader to be truly enabling other people to do their best job by providing support, advice, direction, and help in goal setting as well as explaining the complexities of certain project types and relationships associated with large project teams. Facilitating everyone’s highest goal, no matter what it happens to be, is a top focus for John.
