John is a business development and management expert who has taken every opportunity in his 30-year career to shore up the success of up-and-coming businesses. A critical thinker and problem solver, he's happiest helping a company reach its stride — whether it's his own initiative, a client's struggling startup or a niche operation he's discussing with a colleague at a gathering of USA 500. John cofounded the $14 million printing firm Bay State Press in 1988 and sold the company 10 years later to start Gleason Consulting, which he led for 16 years. He also served in executive leadership roles with a national investment banking intermediary headquartered in Manhattan. In 2015, recognizing a gap in operational support for local businesses, he launched his first Supporting Strategies franchise to offer bookkeeping and controller services in 2015. He has now grown to own and operate 5 locations. John holds a Management Accounting Certificate from Cornell University, studied Economics at UMass Boston and completed professional courses in Graphic Arts at Northeastern University. He is also a member of the USA 500, ProVisors and local chamber of commerce. Outside of work, he enjoys traveling, reading, motorcycling and fitness training.
