I worked with John at National Castings and he shared his knowledge of Transportation with me. He was very supportive of women in the transportation industry -- back in the 70's there were not many women in the business. When I declined the offer to relocate to the Chicago office, John went out of his way to recommend me for positions within the industry which was a huge advantage with so many looking for positions at the time. I will be forever grateful to John for giving me the opportunity. God Bless
