I worked very closely with John for a number of years on public relations, crisis management and issue management activities. He is absolutely and
positively the best there is! Superb judgment, insightful, a great strategist and tactician, and one of the most genuine people you’ll ever meet.
Whatever kinds of issues you’re dealing with, I highly recommend John if you need assistance.
