John held many positions at CGG Veritas over the years to include seismic cable repair, umbilical repair, fiber optic lead in terminations and management of the equipment for the fleet of vessels from 1996-2006.
John joined ION Geophysical to promote sales of the seabed seismic product line and provide customer support for the products ION manufactures from 2006-2008. In 2008 John joined Bennex (now Siemens) to sell and promote the subsea distribution, sensing and other products and services Siemens provides. In 2013 John began work for Seacon (now TE Connectivity) to start a subsea distribution group for them at their SAPL location in Belleville, Texas, where he was Sales Director for the U.S. until leaving to found the new company TTL Subsea, Inc.
