Chief Executive Officer
CEO of NJMEP, John Kennedy is not only a leader, but NJMEP’s biggest fan. John’s passion for the work NJMEP does shows in all he does, from industry advocacy to public outreach. Understanding both what it takes to help local manufacturers today, and how to extend their life into hundreds of tomorrows, John takes great personal pride in seeing the result of NJMEP’s efforts.
Years spent as an engineer, John understands the value of working with your hands and feels it’s his mission to keep that important truth alive during a time when people look down on these positions. John sees the effort put in by every member of the NJMEP staff as preserving a great American tradition, and that motivation is present in everything he does for the company.
As a nation placed where we are by the hands of hardworking manufacturers, it would be a shame for John to see those hands disrespected in any way. NJMEP and John Kennedy have made it their missions to see those hands are given everything they need to succeed, and his daily efforts in building better paths for local manufacturers to take is proof of that.
