Briefly about me, John Psarouthakis, PhD.
I have observed the world from a remarkable range of vantage points, taking a proactive role in each. As an orphaned child I endured the Nazi occupation of Crete. I arrived in the United States with $15 in my pocket and speaking only a few English words, but graduated from MIT. Early in my career I led a Martin Corp. team researching nuclear power for deep space travel. I later led the Allis Chalmers Technology labs, then became a key player in finding, assessing, and acquiring manufacturing companies around the world for Masco Corp. My first entrepreneurial venture, JPIndustries Inc., became a Fortune 500 company before I sold it. Inc. Magazine twice named me entrepreneur, #entrepreneurtips , of the Year. I have served on several boards and advisory panels and lectured at MIT on Business Enterprise. In recent years I have vectored back to my academic roots-teaching as an adjunct professor at the Ross School of Business, University of Michigan and as a visiting fellow in Europe, more recently at the University of Edinburgh. A couple weeks ago I launched the Knowledge Transfer platform. Click on www.jpmcenter.com This site is being updated / modified based on comments and phone conversations on making it more effective.
