Since joining RLG in 2007, John has become an integral member of our team, where he started as a project manager, advanced to Team Lead, and then moved into a Global Support position in 2013 as our Trainer. In 2015, this scope expanded to Manager of Training & Product Development, and in 2017 John became the Vice President, Capability & Development. In concert with the specialists, John transformed how the C&D group supported, challenged, and inspired us to think differently, learn as an organization, and present our materials and solutions to our customers.
