With specific interest in property, healthcare, manufacturing and retail and tourism services, John has a reputation for being a strategic, open-minded and lateral thinker, a confident decision maker and strong communicator. Exactly what’s required around the board table! He secured his position as Interplast’s treasurer through word of mouth, which piqued his interest and, impressed by the work of Interplast, he pounced at the opportunity to “get away from dealing with accountants, lawyers and bankers all day!”
