As a consultant for Bâton, John approaches his work with a keen desire to deliver measurable value to all stakeholders. Leading with empathy and diligence, John's role is to listen intently and learn quickly in order to understand a client's priorities, people, and processes; challenge the status quo in a direct and respectful manner; adapt to changing circumstances without losing sight of the bigger picture; and identify best practices amongst the clients he serves.
Since joining Bâton in 2019, John has completed work with clients including Bankers Trust, Bravo of Greater Des Moines, Ballet Des Moines, and the Des Moines Area Religious Council. Previously, John worked as a Data Consultant for Principal Financial Group.
