Michael Cairns
We worked together  •  Board Level & Senior Advisory Relationships, Board Member and/or Advisor. Boston grad.
I've know John for 20 years and he's always been on top of new developments in the management and delivery of content. He has been involved ... with major publishing companies but also more recently with innovative companies and projects in education and professional publishing. I've always known John to be welcoming, personable and extremely helpful in helping to network within the industry and with the provision of knowledge and understanding about the relevance of new technology and trends in the publishing and educational space. John is also an active member of industry groups and thus is actively working to support our industry. John would be a valued member of any advisor team seeking to better understand the digital content and educational market space.

Michael Cairns
We worked together  •  Board Level & Senior Advisory Relationships, Board Member and/or Advisor. Boston grad.
Michael and I worked together when he was with the RR Bowker and I was a board member of the Digital Object Identifier (DOI) Foundation. We ... have continued to keep in touch through many publishing initiatives and start-ups. Michael is the kind of person that any start-up person would want--he is kind, professional, gentlemanly, and intelligent. He knows his industry better than anyone else I know. However, in addition to being a "nice guy" he is very analytical, organized, perceptive, and has a mean sense of what a board or funders want. He always seems to be at least three steps ahead of the current situations, and thus helps people avoid problems. I cannot think of a better person or businessman.
