John spent over 30 years in Local Government Finance and the Enforcement Industry, during this time he became a Fellow of the Institute of Revenues, Rating & Valuation and was a member of their National Council. In 2015 he relocated to the Costa Blanca and purchased Sapphire Properties based in Ciudad Quesada, and embarked on a new challenge.
