“I recently worked with John on the acquisition of our new head office building. In the brief time we have worked together, John has consistently been a dependable honest individual, who was more than capable of taking control of a big project and executing it to the fullest. In addition to this he was a pleasure to work with and always maintained a cheerful mentality in the face of daunting deadlines. Rarely do you come across someone who is talented at both big picture ideas and executing the small details whilst always being available to lend a hand – John is just that person.”
