John has been an entrepreneur for his entire working life. He has grown four companies as a principal investor to as many as two thousand employees, in four different industries; environmental services, computer services, specialty financial services and transportation and logistics services. He believes that companies can grow and thrive in America with American workers, and that outsourcing overseas based on “pricing efficiencies” creates instability and weakness in our domestic economy. He founded Xpress-1, (NY Stock Exchange XPO) in 2001 as Segmentz. He grew from startup to over 20 facilities in nine states and put the company on the American Stock Exchange in 2004. The Company is now a twelve billion dollar international leader in business logistics and support services.
