John Sanchez started his career at a top 10 international CPA firm and quickly climbed the ranks at some of the top Fortune 500 companies in the country. Things took a surprising turn when the division he worked in at AutoNation USA, the countries largest auto retailer, shut down abruptly, leaving John and 400+ colleagues out of work. Realizing the unique and highly valuable skillset John had, AutoNation quickly hired John back as a consultant. Having never thought he would be back at his former employer, John became a consultant quite accidentally and he never looked back.
While working on a finance consulting project for the CFO of a national financial services marketing firm, John was asked by a national think tank and training organization to speak at a conference about some of his budget and forecasting experiences. John quickly realized he loved speaking and training and has since devoted more and more of his time to training accounting and finance professionals and speaking to diverse crowds about the incredible lessons he has learned through his twenty plus year career working with people and organizations from a hugely diverse range of industries.
