John was the first customer of Splash Media in 2005. He began his career in the late 80s with firms such as Bear Stearns and Lehman Brothers, and in 1998, pursued his passion for technology by founding LiquidTrader, a high performance professional trading platform. The company was acquired by GlobalTec Solutions and sold for $135M eighteen months later. John stayed on as President, where he consistently grew the company to $75M rev. and $24M EBITDA. John acquired Splash Media in 2013 with the vision of creating a dominant global, multi-cultural social media agency. He is a father to two teenagers, a three-year-old and a bunch of millennials at Splash who lovingly refer to him as “Dank.” John loves fast cars, demonstrated by his average driving speed, and enjoys an afternoon on the golf course, though he is only likely to hit his driver.
