Account Coordinator: John Pope

John Pope - cannabis cupJohn was born in the UK and qualified in Engineering at Peterborough & Leicester Polytechnic (now De Montfort University) specializing in machine design. He worked on various Projects in the UK before moving to Cape Town, South Africa in the early 80’s on a two year contract but  ended staying over 30 years. After the initial two year contract he moved into Management for 5 years before returning to consulting in design and project management for various Companies in South Africa. During his last 15 years in South Africa he and a partner formed a packaging manufacturing company developing it from one employee to over thirty.

He moved to America in late 2011 to be near his family and started a small online business, which has supplied him with a wealth of knowledge in the digital space – particularly in e-commerce. When asked by his Daughter, Samantha Bedford, to advise and assist her with the onset of her new business venture he jumped at the opportunity. He has since been involved in various projects from making the morning coffee to building, reporting on and analyzing campaigns. And enjoying the opportunity of working on “Greenfield Projects” again.
