John Bridgeman John Bridgeman has coached and mentored individuals in a wide variety of situations during his 30-plus year career as a business executive and consultant. A combination of active listening, use of examples drawn from personal experience, a mutually-agreed upon game plan with achievable and measurable results, and frequent follow-up and reinforcement, usually does the trick. A sense of humor helps, too.

John has lived in Southern California since 1978 and became a U.S. citizen in 1994. He first came to the States in 1968 as a Fulbright Scholar to the University of Oregon in Eugene, and returned as a production and quality consultant to a food manufacturer in Zanesville, Ohio in 1974.
John started The Travis Group in 1987 and, prior to that, was Vice President of Human Resources for the Kal Kan Foods division of Mars, Inc. in Vernon, California for 5 years. During this period, John personally closed a manufacturing facility in Irvine and structured the retention bonus in such a way that the last week's production broke records for highest tonnage, highest quality and lowest cost. He also introduced regular open communications meetings within his division to enlist the support and commitment of hourly as well as salaried associates. The approach was adopted by the other divisions as the company moved to a more participative culture. John represented Kal Kan on several Mars initiatives that affected all companies in the US and overseas, and traveled extensively internationally, working particularly closely with sister companies in Europe.
...
John began his career with Imperial Chemical Industries and joined Mars, Inc. in 1972. He has worked as a laboratory technician, process chemist, product development supervisor, research and development manager, purchasing and production director, and then headed the Kal Kan research and development group before moving into the human resources area. As well as working in the UK and US, John spent 3 years in Toronto with the Mars Canadian operation.
John was born and educated in England where he received his Doctor of Philosophy in Organic Chemistry from Oxford University (D.Phil., Oxon) and a B.Sc. (First Class Honors) in Applied Chemistry from the University of Salford. He then moved to the University of Oregon as a Fulbright Scholar and conducted research as a National Institutes of Health Post-Doctoral Fellow. John has participated in residential executive programs in Advanced Human Resources (University of Michigan Graduate School of Business Administration) and Business Strategy (Columbia Graduate School of Business), and graduated from the Tom Peters' Skunk Camp as a Master Skunk.
