John moved to Bend with his family in 2005 after over 20 years working in a variety of international corporate finance positions, hoping to enjoy a quieter life in Central Oregon. That same year John was selected as Finance Director for Mt. Bachelor. During the next six seasons John continued his work as the finance lead along with a number of other senior team responsibilities including IT, Marketing, Sales, Retail, Receiving and Tickets. He even managed to run a lift or two during employee ski events. In 2011 John left the mountain to join Bend Research as CFO, followed by a stint with Hayden Homes. While he was away, John longed for the mountain lifestyle. He returned as Finance Director in 2015. John became President and General Manager of Mt. Bachelor in May of 2016.
