Institutional Affiliation



John, who is a CPA, has been the Chief Financial Officer of non-profits for over 38 years.  They include a national fraternity headquarters, an outpatient drug treatment facility, and a veteran organization.  He also serves as the treasurer of Westar, the Chair of the Finance Committee, and a member of the Executive Committee.

John and his wife are members of North United Methodist Church.  He is the Finance Director for the church they attend. He loves both numbers and people.

John is a follower of Westar because it allows his doubt to have a place to be accepted. He was hooked on Westar when Bob Funk said you do not have to belief in the resurrection to be Christian. He is happy to put his professional skills to use for Westar.
