John LaManna Linkedin
“Inspired people, both individually and collectively, are the most important factors in achieving an ambitious goal.”
John LaManna is never going to agree with Thomas Edison’s axiom that genius is 99% perspiration, 1% inspiration. Rather, he holds the firm conviction that great results come from people who are truly inspired, people who are wholly invested in a project’s mission, and its potential for success. John has a knack for finding the spark that spurs his teams on to do more. He is passionate about his beliefs and loves a spirited debate with similarly inspired people.
John’s career trajectory has followed his passions as well, from the music industry to entrepreneurial manufacturing and renewable energy, including roles at Vestas and the Lundquist Center for Entrepreneurship. He has an MBA from the University of Oregon and a bachelor’s degree in business administration and marketing from the University of Florida.
