Meet John, SHP Sales Manager! Ask him about his role here and he’ll tell you his primary responsibility is to make our office more attractive with his good looks and charming personality. (In addition to generating new business revenue, of course.) Whether he’s speaking with potential clients or our internal call team, his extensive knowledge and love for sales always shines through.
John has been building and coaching sales & customer service teams for Fortune 250 and multi-million dollar companies for over 15 years and still loves it. For him, there’s nothing better than coaching people to their strengths, seeing them achieve their goals, and being a part of the positive outcome. Closing large, long-term deals, and helping clients grow is pretty awesome too!
A genuine “people person” John is a great mentor and friend to many- but a forewarning – don’t be in his way on the road! He resides in the Philadelphia area with his lovely wife and adorable son.

What Motivates You To Do What You Do Here At SHP? How Do You Contribute To A Positive Customer Experience?
