For the past five years, John has served as the Executive Director for UC Office of the President Human Resources, where he led the development of a new model for HR service delivery, focused on strategic partnerships to drive organizational goals. He is currently serving as the HR lead on the Office of the President's UCPath implementation Steering Committee and is an active member of the UCPath Center Advisory Committee.
