Johns helps clients seeking to scale their organizations rapidly across four distinct stages of growth – from early-stage to mature – and works with senior leaders to ensure the strategic plan and planning process are appropriate to take the organization to the next level and beyond. Like us all, John embraces the cardinal rule that strategy must be feasible.
He works closely with management to achieve alignment around key priorities with an emphasis on execution and accountability at both established financial institutions but also with some of the world’s leading Fintech innovators including LendingClub, WePay, Nerdwallet. This experience enables him to act as a bridge between Silicon Valley and global Fintechs on the one hand, and established FI clients on the other.
He specializes in helping clients on both sides of this bridge understand how to most effectively bring new ideas and technologies to established markets by using proprietary tools to drive highly effective planning processes. he excels at facilitating the strategy process, while recognizing that management must own every step of the process.
John served as SVP of Strategy and Business Development for CUNA Mutual Group for ten years. Previously he was a strategy consultant with Hagberg Consulting Group and Boston Consulting Group.
He received his MBA from Harvard Business School where he graduated as a Baker Scholar and his BA from the University of Washington. John loves biking, hiking and music (rock – from a certain era). John lives in Seattle with his wife Lynn.
