…the newest addition to the “Information Technology” business center.
Previously John was with the business center “Business Services.”
We want to take a moment to congratulate John on his new position with IT services and give you the opportunity to get to know him.
John has been in the field of Procurement for over fourteen years, the last two has been at DAS Procurement Services. Previously, his experience has been in private industry spending most of his procurement career at Hewlett Packard. What John loves about procurement and particularly governmental procurement is the variety of the projects. “You never know what will hit your desk” said John “it is a constant learning opportunity.” John has also worked in the contract food management field and banking. All his experience has greatly contributed to his expertise as a procurement analyst.
John enjoys fishing, playing basketball and watching his kids play sports. He enjoys other activities such as camping and hiking. When asked about his greatest accomplishments he answered with a wry grin “Shouldn’t I say having kids” and chuckled. John’s kids know they are number one with Dad, because his greatest accomplishment so far was balancing his family life as he pursued his Master’s Degree while working full time. Certainly not an easy task. As John looks to the future and his long term goals he is considering the opportunities available within the State of Oregon.
