Currency Performance Consultant – Part Time
John has been a member of the 7 Layer team since February 2018. A self declared non-techy, John knows a lot about Central Banks, the cash cycle, banknotes and the banknote industry. Having been with us for while now, however, he can hold his own about data lakes, Hadoop clusters, spikes, scrums and stories with tremendous confidence and great aplomb. He served 27 years at De La Rue Currency, ending as the Product Manager and Marketing Director, and nearly 2 years with CCL Secure as Head of Sales Operations. When not at 7 Layer, he is Chair of the Future of Cash Conference and does some industry consulting for Reconnaissance International. In 2018 John sailed across the Pacific with the Clipper Round the World yacht race. He is now busy planning what next so that he isn’t just seen as a sailor washed up on the shores of Cheltenham.
