25 years of living and working across four continents has helped shape John who brings a diverse and international background to City Market. His experience spans the corporate world managing global beverage brands and projects such as the Olympics, a decade in non profits addressing poverty through Fair Trade and finding environmental solutions at 1% for the Planet. Driven by a restless curiously and abundance of optimism and energy to continuously search for ways to do more good and do well, John has been busy preparing City Market for expansion in Burlington Vermont since 2015. John earned a BA in International Business and Economics from Sophia University (in Japan) in conjunction with The University of Pennsylvania. A formerly ranked tennis player, John still enjoys befriending the fuzzy yellow ball, but these days, can more often be found taking advantage of the great Vermont outdoors hiking, cycling and sledding with his family.
