Although finding his niche in operations, John originally comes from an Accounting/Finance background. He graduated from Texas A&M with a Bachelor's in Accounting and a Master's in Finance. While at Texas A&M, John was involved in the Business Honors Program, Brotherhood of Christian Aggies and Aggie Men's Volleyball Club.
After graduating, John spent his first year out of school in the assurance practice at Ernst & Young and finished his CPA license during that time. Soon after EY, John landed at AppDynamics, a software subsidiary of Cisco Technologies, where he took on various operations roles across Deal Desk, Renewals, and Customer Experience (CX). Most recently, he was the Director of CX Revenue Operations, where he brought his financial acumen and operational/analytical mind together to deliver value for the team of 400+ people.
John enjoys seeing and understanding the big picture, then figuring out how to break that down into simple and clear processes for his team. He loves the mantra "nothing inspires like clarity," coined by Adam Tarnow. He strives for clarity in communication, clarity in processes and clarity in expectations.
When he's not nerding out over numbers, processes, or leadership podcasts, you can find John doing house renovation projects and spending time with his wife, Chandler, in Fort Worth. She's easily the coolest Bundren and way more fun to be around (says John himself).
