John is among my most trusted advisors, previously having served as general counsel of two companies that I led. He possesses a remarkable ability to help people resolve their differences. His low key and team focused approach is a surprising catalyst that time and time again has helped others solve their problems..
John was our chief counsel and also ran one of our technology product businesses due to his unique legal and business capabilities. John also served as our lead tactician on the Vertis/American Color double pre-packaged bankruptcy merger. He was in the midst of hundreds of parties and the glue that kept them talking through all the positions, ultimatums, and deadlines.
John and I worked closely together when he was Chairman of the Colorado Parks & Wildlife Commission during my time a Director of Parks & Wildlife. John’s ability to bring together our traditional users, stretch users, and even hostile groups via an approach built on respect helped us to engage with the future of our state’s natural resources.
As Executive Director of Colorado’s Department of Natural Resources, I encouraged John to represent Colorado Parks & Wildlife on the Great Outdoors Colorado board. The relationship between CPW and GOCO was in a difficult space. John played the crucial role between the boards bringing the two groups back together and focused on Colorado’s wildlife, lands, and water.
