Principal, Allegion Ventures
John brings the Allegion Ventures team in-depth knowledge of user experience and systems architecture. Better yet, he’s a digital dreamer who is highly engaged and creative. Growing up surrounded by the latest tech led to a career leading technology teams. As an early adopter, he has a thirst to learn and seek out technologies that improve the way of life for all. He has a knack for finding good ideas and the insight to see alternative possibilities that our portfolio companies haven’t yet envisioned.
John is one of our principals at Allegion’s Ventures and vice president of global technology services for Allegion plc. He brings a unique global cultural perspective to these roles, having led diverse, smart teams all across the world: born in London, U.K., most recently he lived in Italy, held responsibilities in EMEIA and Asia Pacific regions, and is currently enjoying himself back in the USA. His work experience spans a variety of functions and business units, as well as the pharmaceutical, automotive and security industries.
Married with two kids, John is a world explorer, aspiring photographer and a bit of a Star Wars fanatic. He is active in programs promoting awareness of mental health issues, and is a motivator and inspiration for others to focus on the balance of being healthy and managing busy professional lives.
