As a graphic design major with a penchant for art, John didn’t expect his career to take a technical turn. However, the pivot started while he answered phones in technical support. Without realizing it at the time, John built up a ton of product knowledge across the board, which helped him step into product roles—and eventually connect with VIZIO.

When John’s team steps up to bat, he oversees competitive research processes and collaborates with both Marketing and Sales Teams to sync the steps of introducing new technologies to the world.
