John Greenwald is a Colorado native, has been married to his high school sweetheart, Becky, for 40 years, and has two children and 4 grandchildren. He graduated college with a degree in business in 1976, worked as a branch manager for W. W. Grainger, then in an outside sales role for an electrical wholesale distributor in Denver prior to buying an electrical manufacturers representative firm in 1985. John successfully ran his firm until he coordinated a buy-out with a key employee in 2011.

During his time as a rep, John was an active NEMRA member. He served as the Colorado representative to the NEMRA Board Of Governors for many years prior to being elected to the national Board of Directors. While on the Board, he served as treasurer, chairman elect, chairman, and finished with a year serving the duties of past chairman. John also served on numerous rep councils for the various manufacturers he represented over the years. He served a term on the NAED board, and as the Chairman of MRERF. John completed the course work and became a CPMR in one of the first graduating classes, and maintained his certification until he retired in 2011. John was honored by Electrical Wholesaling Magazine in 1997, receiving the GEM Rising Star Award.

John is now retired from the electrical industry and works with his wife, Becky, to manage and maintain the commercial property they own. He is active with his church and is currently heading a project to fund and complete a building remodel, sings in the choir, rings bells in the bell choir, takes communion to the home bound, and works with Becky and prospective couples for marriage preparation.

John was a member of the NETCOM group for many years prior to his retirement, and was honored to be asked to act as the facilitator for the group after Ron Landisi, the group’s original facilitator, announced his retirement. John now performs the facilitator function for the group’s meetings, collecting topics and financial data for discussion, organizing and running the semi-annual meetings, and publishing the meeting notes. He also works to organize a clearing house for shared resources and documents for the group.
