“When you want to understand how you should provide great customer service, John is the one. John understands the value of customer service and always exceeded customer expectations.
John has very good people and organizational skills. John left our company for new opportunities. I would consider John coming back to the Safeway team if a position was to open up.
Couldn’t ask for a better team player with great communications skills.
John would be a great addition to any company.”
~ Don Grambusch, Director of Distribution, Safeway Inc
“John is a people person. He elevates the level of respect to anyone he comes in contact with and leaves people with a feeling a self worth and accomlishment. This is what sets John apart from other managers. John gives heartfelt praise when it is appropritate, and has the ability to steer subordinates to the correct path when it is not clear to them. John is a leader by example, and has shown in the past that he will put in the time to accomplish company objectives.” December 2, 2011

“As the Race Director for BolderBOULDER, I dealt with many vendors and consultants in the area of brand management and creative services. John Gillespie is a talented marketing and strategy professional among the people I have worked with. He has always impressed me with his passionate and focused drive as a Brand Ambassador. John takes his role in creating business seriously, works well with others in planning a detailed approach, and consistently shows the drive to execute it in the most efficient way. I consider him a great asset to any well-run marketing organization.”
~ Cliff Bosley, Race Director, Bolder Boulder 10K
“John Gillespie’s positive attitude and “can do” spirit is his signature of excellence. I worked with John when he was the Operations Manager for Warehouse Distribution at Dreyer’s, a job that involved long hours, high demands, and intense business accountability. In addition, John managed the team of individuals who worked in the freezer (-30 degrees). It was critical that John maintained a strong, cohesive team that was safety oriented and customer service focused, and he delivered on that charge. John’s team both respected and liked him, and he did an outstanding job of retaining employees in a physically challenging work environment. John’s positive spirit notably energized the Dreyer’s organization in Denver, and I am confident that he would bring that same positive impact to any organization that was fortunate enough to have him in their ranks.” November 15, 2011

“I have had the honor of working with John for several years. During that time, John managed his areas of responsibility with enthusiasm and resolve. John would be an asset to any prospective employer.”
Wayne Horsley, Technical Operations Manager, Nestle
“John was always a joy to work with. He is a hard worker, cares about getting the job done right and a great help when needed.”
~ Greta Von Duyke, SBT Manager, Nestle/Dreyer’s Grand Ice Cream
“I have known John Gillespie for more than five years, and now, as a close friend. His enthusiasm for weather and his love of nature prompted our friendship during my days of forecasting in Colorado. In many ways, John has been my biggest fan as I tackle national weather coverage at TWC, cheering and storm tracking from the sidelines! He is genuine and compassionate towards his family, friends and anyone who has the pleasure of meeting him.
His encouraging words and faith helped me through a difficult year following the premature birth of my daughter. He continues to remind me of life’s countless blessings and the miracles that surround her extraordinary life. John embraces every day with optimism, perseverance and ambition. While he’s chock-full of career accomplishments as well, I chose to tell you about the guy you’d want to share an enlightening conversation with over “a cup of Joe.” He might just change your outlook on life!”
