JD is a graduate of PSU and pursued a career in radio broadcasting for 32 years. He leveraged his time spent there as a rich learning platform for his evolution into a business strategist. JD’s reputation for insightful evaluation, planning, and a passion for driving results have grown his involvement with companies and organizations internationally as an executive coach and leadership development facilitator for senior teams. He has a fine-tuned understanding of the risks, challenges, and opportunities facing both seasoned and emerging CEOs, and guides local leaders as a Vistage Chair for executive peer groups. More recently his focus has turned toward the role of purpose in business and the new challenge of transitioning to a millennial-based workforce.
