John "JD" Draper, CEO, Viridian Group, LLC and Multi-State, Multi-Unit Franchisee with Pie Five Pizza Co.

"JD" as he's known, has over 43 years of retail and operational management experiences. He was part of the team at V & J Holdings Companies, Inc. in Milwaukee from 1994 until a new opportunity as CEO of the Viridian Group presented itself in early 2015. Draper and his son, John Draper II, have been up to 55 franchise units of Pie Five Pizza Co. The father-son team plans to introduce the concept throughout Michigan as well as to cities in Wisconsin. Draper, who has been recognized for his ability to multi-task and develop teams, attended Wayne State University where he majored in business administration. Throughout his career he's had director responsibility for over 100 restaurants including Pizza Huts, Burger Kings, Auntie Annie's, Coffee Beanery's, Cinnabon Bakeries, Haagen Dazs shops and MyYoMy yogurt shops. In sharing his story he revealed, "My parents taught me to stay focused and to always be hospitable. Which is really the reason why I choose the food industry. He also revealed this observation from his many years working in the industry, "regardless of age, race or religion, people are people and if you can find that common bond, you can achieve success. He's done that, having been appointed to the International Franchise Association Diversity Institute as a board member and being named their Ronald E. Harrison Diversity Award recipient for his accomplishments in diversity and inclusion.
