Sign Pro is excited to officially welcome John Haire to our team. Although John joined us in mid-2016, he has now officially relocated from Springfield, MA, where he was born and raised, to Connecticut.
We’re so happy to have John as a member of our team and we are fascinated by the story that got him here. John has always loved art and being a part of the creative process. Early in his career he designed and silkscreened shirts. In the late 1980s and early 1990s, John served our country as a Lance Corporal in the Marines. During the first Gulf War, he toured in Saudi Arabia and Kuwait. After the Marines, John went back to school, earned his degree and shifted his career to the insurance industry.
However, the creative side of John just wouldn’t keep quiet and he was ready for a change. He became a Vinyl Graphics Installer and hasn’t looked back. Last spring, the Sign Pro team was experiencing growth and John had exactly what we were looking for. As a member of our Vinyl Installation Team, John is now responsible for installing vehicle graphics for local and national clients right here at our Plantsville facility. He also visits client locations in the Northeast to install window, wall and door graphics.
“My favorite part of my job is bringing the signage to life. I’m often at the customer’s location and I get to see the look of excitement and satisfaction on their face as I complete the job.”
John credits his time as a Marine to helping him excel in his career. He has the ability to be flexible and adapt as changes come his way. “John’s do whatever it takes attitude has made him a valuable asset on our team”, said Pete Rappoccio, Sign Pro Founder and President.
And according to John, Sign Pro is one of the best companies he has ever worked for. He appreciates that Pete sets the bar high and that every single member of the team works hard to be the best at what they do. John enjoys being a part of a company where excellence and quality are at the forefront every single day, every single sign.
Well, we’re sure glad John is officially here. Welcome John and thank you for your service to our country and your service to our customers!
