I have known and worked with John for the past three years and apart from the professional and resources one would expect from someone of his calibre he brings a truly commercial and pragmatic approach to project finance assignments. He exhibits huge attention to detail and is not afraid to challenge assumptions. In short, he delivers.
Dr Tony Woods, CEO The Talbot group
John has provided me with clear and structured guidance, providing clarity to our overall business development strategy with advice borne from years of experience in the industry on funding strategies
Brody Sweeney, CEO Camile Thai Restaurants
When I decided to set up Alburn in 2003 I asked John to join our fledgling company as finance director having worked with him previously in Dunloe Ewart Plc. – his sharp and focused ability, his easy touch and familiar handling of people and staff had come to my attention. John was instrumental in growing the company with me over a seven year period with operations in Dublin, Northern Ireland and the UK.
He is absolutely direct in confronting problems as they arise, straight to the point (a quality most people in business appreciate) while having more than enough charm to ensure that even bad news can be presented in an upbeat and sensitive manner while not avoiding the issue.
Noel Smyth, Solicitor and CEO Alburn
