As the son of a Navy veteran who succeeded in the banking industry, John followed that path, graduating from East Carolina University, engaging valuable experiences in the financial services industry at a national level, compiling diverse relationships and learning much about people and securing what it takes to succeed. Many years of chasing the deal led to burn out, and life happened. Family loss added harsh and new perspective.
BlueCrest ownership offered John the opportunity to pivot, to engage a commitment to contribute his diverse life experiences, to transfer his skill set to the recovery community, and save lives. Being a long time friend of Bill, having come from a challenged upbringing yet gifted with personality traits of optimism, passion, courage and reliability, John has been placed in a position to contribute to a life-saving effort that is 100% solution based. Being a firm believer that iron sharpens iron, and fully aware that too who much is given, much is expected—it’s John’s time to give away what was so freely given to him; the gift of sobriety and a can-do attitude. Interests outside of BlueCrest include family, nature, exercise, an evolving relationship with God, education, studying history, and a loving support of United States Veterans.
