John Wilson, JR
Director Since 2005
Chief Executive Officer, VMC Group. Mr. Wilson thrives on ‘the art of the deal’. Within 4 years of his career, he initiated and negotiated financial transactions valued at over $50m. His talent lies in creating the market for a product or service, assembling the team, and then, profitably developing and selling that product or service.
In 1997 John co-founded VMC East, a leading vibration sales company and in 8 years, grew sales from $100k to $3 million. In 2005, he acquired VMC Group with sales of $16 million and continuously delivers profits on over $40 million in sales. In 2006, he led the acquisition of Amber/Booth Co., in Houston, Texas to add to VMC Group’s strategy to deliver engineered solutions to their growing global client base. The following year, he led the joint venture with IDC International in Puerto Rico to save a product line with declining margins and brought it to profitability.
His visionary leadership enhanced VMC Group’s competitive edge by acquiring California’s OSHPD approval for VMC’s seismically rated vibration isolation product line, which enhanced VMC Group’s competitive edge. He patented VMC Group’s IBC® Signature Methodology to assure successful completion of IBC® and/or OSP certification and obtained the patent for ‘TeleCurb’ allowing VMC to compete in the national and international marketplace.
John Wilson is tenacious in every aspect of business and continually inspires a culture of employee engagement. His humility and entrepreneurial approach have driven him to deliver remarkable outcomes around the globe with joint ventures in India, China and Taiwan.
