C12 Chair since 2019
God fueled John with a strong passion for excellence, service, and leadership–and he lives to serve God and others by helping executives live and lead well! After a distinguished military career, it is his honor to serve business leaders in Colorado and seek to promote excellence and a kingdom-focus in the marketplace. In 1989, John journeyed to Colorado from his native Virginia to attend the United States Air Force Academy and this began a 30-year adventure in the Air Force. John served as a command pilot, with over 3,500 hours in several aircraft, supporting military operations from humanitarian to combat around the globe. While serving at over 15 different locations in the U.S. and around the world, he completed work as a strategic planner and global operations director and served as a military commander at the squadron and wing levels. As a wing commander, he was responsible for over 3,000 personnel conducting military operations around the globe and over $6B in military assets. His final assignment brought him back to the Academy, where he served as the Vice Commandant of Cadets focusing on leadership and character development for 4,000 future officers. As a life-long student of leadership, he completed three master’s programs in management, strategy, and organizational leadership at Regent University, the National Defense University, and George Washington University, and culminated with his Doctorate in Strategic Leadership from Regent University in 2014. John is an avid distance runner who loves the mountain trails and has completed numerous 50 and 100-mile races. He is married to the amazing Stephanie Price who also attended the Academy and shared the Air Force journey with him. They have two teenage children. As the C12 Managing Chair for Southern Colorado, John serves leaders from South Denver down the I-25 corridor to Colorado Springs and Pueblo, as well as, western areas out through Summit County and Aspen.
