Apologies for the delay in programming, we have been busy evacuating the building because one of our coworkers can’t seem to stop burning toast in the kitchen*. Learn about the Toaster Culprit below.
Joined Spring in: John is a “Founding Father” if you will, having been involved in the company’s inception in 2004.
Professional interests/skills: John has a strong background in both healthcare and strategic planning. At Spring, he works with the other partners and senior leadership on overall organizational direction, product and service development and company growth. He also works on client projects ranging from strategy development, to captive insurance companies, to the creation and management of employer groups.
Outside-of-work: Work is always crazy, so John spends a lot of his free time catching up on sleep. He also does his best to keep fit and enjoys listening to jazz, buying art and antiques and watching Formula 1 racing, the Pats and the Red Sox. A UK native (as if you couldn’t tell), he tries to visit his daughter and her family there as often as he can. Further, renovating his vacation home also keeps him busy on the weekends.
Around the office, he’s also known for a) grabbing the odd cocktail with coworkers like Aadil, Prabal and Lai-Sahn and b) setting off the fire alarm from burning toast*. Brits and their toast, am I right?
Favorite season: “Definitely summer. Us Brits never get enough sun!”
Favorite flower: John favors daffodils – specifically in the Lake District in England – as well as Rhododendrons (“Rhodies”) and beach plums while he relaxes in Rhode Island.
Favorite food: “I’d have to go with Confit de Canard. Although it’s really bad for you, my late French grandmother-in-law knew how to prepare it beautifully.”
Favorite part about working at Spring: John loves the team at Spring and the fact that every day is a new day, never the same as the one before.
If you could live in a different time period from the past, which would it be and why? “Probably a middle-class Victorian in England around 1850 while Prince Albert was alive and everything was happening.”
Could this guy be anymore British?
