John – Barwon Branch

JohnJohn joined Solve’s Barwon Branch in 2011. John is a qualified A-grade Electrician and spent his working life at Ford in Geelong. During his time at Ford, he worked his way up from being a tradesman to running an exhaust emission and fuel economy laboratory as well as the performance testing group.

“I find being able to use my brain and the trade skills I learnt over 40 years ago extremely challenging and satisfying (you never actually forget them – its amazing!). If I’m not sure of something, there is always a stack of experience within the Barwon Branch that I can draw on.”

As well as being a technical volunteer, John currently holds a position on the Solve Disability Solutions Board.
