John has been recognized by B2B Marketing as one of the top 10 business-to-business marketers in the United States.
An aging but avid sportsman, John has dragged his body around 5 marathon courses, one ironman triathlon and the L’Etape du Tour bike race.
John was born in England and grew up in Canada. He now lives with his family in Aix-en-Provence, France.
