Here is what our team had to say about John and how he brings our core values to life everyday!

A Fearless Pursuit of Excellence

“John has been an outstanding team member these past few weeks, and months! Taking on the challenge of overseeing all operations for YAS, including Product Development and Exam Administration, and really taking the time to help build strong teams. Recently, he simply put a lot on the back burner to turn his undivided attention to a critical proposal and presentation. He took the lead and brought it to the finish line, working with competing demands and team members with competing priorities and crazy schedules. I continue to be impressed with John and feel privileged to have him as part of the YAS Leadership team. Thank you John!”

“John has been absolutely amazing in the past few months. With all of the changes from the integration to a redefined role, he fearlessly took on this challenge. John has developed and implemented efficient and structured processes with the product team. More recently, he stepped in for a very important RFP response, and took over major sections of the RFP to ensure an innovative and comprehensive response, and worked long days, long long days, putting on paper what we know we are best at doing, clearly and elegantly outlining all important points. John’s leadership and willingness to step in and get his hands dirty is extremely appreciated and valued by his colleagues on the leadership team but also by his team.”

What John has to say?

“I am humbled and honoured to receive this recognition. I have a tremendous admiration for the dedicated and talented team that I work with everyday.”
