As President of Coors Brewing Company, I worked with John for almost ten years. He was a fine asset to our company, an
enthusiastic contributor to our community, and a good friend.
I value John’s leadership, strategic guidance, and integrity. John brings passion and objectivity to critical legal issues facing the
business. He has the ability to simplify the complex and provide business solutions to legal issues. John is a non-territorial
team player who is focused on the success of the business. He takes charge of an issue, brings a calmness and clarity to a
crisis, and drives for results.
I believe that he would be an excellent contributor as a member of any company/team."

“John and I have worked closely in a demanding and complex business environment. John worked diligently at the oversight of
highly varied, and separate, legal matters. While John is always focused on the most complete legal advice he is always mindful
of cost. He is a person of extraordinary character with a warm and engaging personality, suiting him well as he adapts to
different individuals and teams, and their unique needs. I have the utmost of trust and respect for John."

“John has been a trusted business partner for over 7 years – far exceeding the expectations of the General Counsel
function. His knowledge of our business environment and internal company and external market conditions and challenges
was invaluable in helping to turnaround our company’s profits 243%. John thoroughly understands the GC role and how it fits
into an executive team not only to protect company assets but how to maximize profits and run an exceptional business for
shareholders and employees. His collaboration and relationship building skills, critical for the Legal function, are second to
none."
