John’s path through CertainTeed demonstrates that people can explore and grow in the company. After earning his degree in mechanical engineering, John started as a project manager in the Essentials of Leadership program before collaborating on an internal business project. After those endeavors, he did a stint in energy management before landing in his current maintenance role.
John supervises everything mechanically related by working with operators and mechanics to streamline maintenance work. He holds regular meetings to identify new needs and brings in resources to meet them—a practice the crew has deemed “Toolbox Talk,” which always includes fried chicken biscuits as snacks. John and his teammates organize an annual shopping spree for disadvantaged kids.
