The addition of John Teahan to Tribute Implementations and Consulting Team in 2012 has added a wealth of real-world distribution experience to the Tribute staff. John came to us from fluid power distributor and manufacturer S.G. Morris, taking on the mantle of Manager of Implementations and Consulting. John leads our customer implementation, training and consulting services team.
A graduate of Villanova University, John has spent 31 years in the fluid power distribution industry holding a variety of positions. Starting his career in inside sales at Ritter Engineering, a change in family status had him moving to Oklahoma where he worked for Aberdeen Dynamics Supply, a fluid power and motion control distributor, in inside sales and as materials manager for the next 18 years. Moving back to the northeast in 2000, John lent his expertise to S.G. Morris as Materials Manager and has been integral in their transition from The Tribute® Software System to TrulinX™.
John is dedicated to organizational management and the principles of Lean Six Sigma, seeking to improve the quality of process outputs by identifying and removing the causes of defects (errors) and minimizing variability in manufacturing and business processes. He has received certificates of achievement from Villanova's continuing education program on Lean Six Sigma, Human Resources Management, Mastering Organizational Effectiveness, Strategic Organizational Leadership and is a Six Sigma Green Belt.
His years of experience in the industry in a variety of positions, his dedication to organizational management and lean processes, and his knowledge of Tribute and TrulinX software make him the ideal leader of our onsite customer service and implementation team. Please join us in welcoming him to the Tribute family!
