John is an IT management and ERP specialist with more than 30 years’ experience in the manufacturing arena (apart from a brief 2 year spell with a software house). Although John has a mathematical sciences background, he developed an interest for computer programming before graduating, and started his career as a programmer for a local manufacturing company in 1986. This love of programming gave John experience of all areas of the business, and subsequent businesses that he has worked with. This led to his first IT management role in 1991, before joining Nifco as IT Manager in 2004. John’s love of photography has proved very useful in recent years as Nifco expanded into new premises, and a photographic story was required for posterity. John is a self-confessed OCD sufferer (check out the inside of his car if you get the chance), sometimes to the amusement of his colleagues.
