JCB CEO David M. Geis announced that two members of JCB’s Board of Directors, Jim Johnson and John Britton, retired as of January 2017. Geis thanked them, saying, “The strong leadership and business acumen provided by Jim and John has helped to support JCB’s growth and success during their tenure as board members. Chairman of the Board Jim McCoy added, "Jim and John have epitomized the combination of experience, talent and commitment which are needed and expected of board members, whose purpose is to represent the interests of our stockholders, customers and communities. Their service has been greatly appreciated and their wisdom and counsel will be missed.”
Johnson has been an active member of JCB’s board since 1984. Retired as president of Midway Supply Corp., Johnson has served numerous leadership positions in community service organizations including Rotary, Jackson County Industrial Development Corp., Seymour Industrial Corp., Seymour Chamber of Commerce and the Community Foundation of Jackson County.
Britton’s 21 years of service to the JCB board bridged his career move from his role as much-loved administrator and coach for Seymour Community Schools to his current role at The Ohio State University as academic advisor. Britton volunteers for community organizations including Seymour Boys & Girls Club, Boy Scouts of America, Kid Again Foundation and the James Ambassadors at Ohio State Medical Center.
