Even before he knew it, John was following the Rex Moore tradition of starting at the bottom and working his way up. John took an entry level accounting job for a hotel property developer while still attending college and, in short order, worked his way through several accounting positions until being promoted to Controller . . . at the ripe young age of 23!
John oversees the accounting and IT functions at Rex Moore. He has had a passion for the continuous improvement of accounting processes since day one. In fact, John is a firm believer in the "one day close," no matter how daunting it may be. John's management style is to empower members of the accounting team to perform their duties independently and to work with others throughout the organization. He is well known within Rex Moore for increasing the timeliness and accuracy of information provided to management while reducing the overall cost of the accounting department. In lay terms, that means he is very good at what he does!
John has over 30 years of experience as a finance professional in multiple industries, 15 years of which were in the construction industry. Prior to joining Rex Moore in 2005, John held several executive management roles, including Controller, Chief Financial Officer, Vice President of Operations and Network Administrator. John holds a bachelor's degree in business from California State University at Sacramento with dual concentrations in Accounting and Management Information Science.
Community involvement is an important part of John's life, including the Masonic Youth Groups, Families for Early Autism Treatment and the Lymphoma and Leukemia Society. For almost two decades John served as a media technician with his church. He is active in the Sacramento Chapter of the Construction Financial Management Association (CFMA), and has completed the Bullet Proof Manager Leadership program (Crestom) and the FMI Leadership training course.
John is a family man and enjoys spending time with his wife, son and daughter. They enjoy many activities together, including theater, sporting events, concerts, hiking, biking, swimming and camping. You also can find John on many weekends enjoying the all American tradition of a backyard barbecue with friends.
