John, whose experience in the catalyst business goes back to the 70s, is the creative and technical visionary behind Crystaphase. His revelation that many of the problems facing refiners were foulant-related was itself a catalyst, pioneering the field of feedstock purification and launching a successful company. He takes pride in having created a space where people who think in different ways come up with solutions no one else has thought of.
John attended both Villanova and the University of Texas. He loves high-speed racing—particularly in terms of how elegant machines combine highly complex engineering with a simplicity of concept and function.
