Get to Know John

Who are 4 people in history you would invite to dinner?

Vince Lombardi, Annie Moore , Lance Armstrong, and Keanu Reeves.

What is your favorite part of working at Bluegrass?

The ability to interact and work with so many different industries. It would not be an uncommon day to be working with a Water Utility in the morning about transactional processing of their bills and then spend the afternoon working on an integrated marketing plan for a customer who buys and sells airplanes.

When people ask what you do, how do you respond?

Listening to customers' needs and working alongside them to work towards a solution or process that accomplishes their business goals.

What is an accomplishment you’re proud of?

I have managed for the past 8 years in a row to participate in a Century ride called the Horsey Hundred. Yep, that is spending most of a day on a bike to complete a 100 mile bike ride. The ride brings people from all over the world to participate annually. So, throughout the day you could find yourself riding alongside and talking to a person from Canada, Spain, or California. I have met some of the most interesting people along these journeys. Kentucky has some of the best cycling routes known worldwide.

What is a little known fact about you?

I have had two hole in ones playing golf!

Why do you think clients should choose to work with Bluegrass?

Other than the 45 plus years of proven history and experience, we also bring a very fresh approach to working with customers. Bluegrass has always stayed on the cutting edge of new technology that we love to share with our customers.
