It’s time to shift focus toward recovery and progressive steps forward. Health and safety will need to be the top priority for the entire workforce as lockdown restrictions are lifted. Economic progress will be and will always remain essential when speaking about business. Both these challenges can be managed simultaneously.

John W. Kennedy, Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer, NJMEP

John is first and foremost a 'Jersey Boy', as he has always been proud of his home State and what it brings to our country...including significant Manufacturing, Engineering, Science, and R&D capabilities. As an Engineer and NJ Business Owner, John was focused on (both) Engineering & Manufacturing and enjoyed success through working with many individuals. From Coleman Equipment to Sandvik to Barnett Industries to The Multitech Group...all part of his Manufacturing evolution through the Material Handling, Power Plants, and DoD workloads. 

When John joined NJMEP in 2012, he found a place where he could support a critical industry while keeping New Jersey in the forefront of technology.  During his tenure, he worked closely with Legislators and other organizations across the state to create a Bi-Partisan Legislative Manufacturing Caucus, which leads to the development of legislation and job training initiatives that will continue to grow the industry.
John continues to work closely with the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Apprenticeship and the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development on creating apprenticeship programs including Industrial Manufacturing Production Technician, and Technical Sales through the Pro-Action Education NetworkTM.

John was named Chair of the NJ State Employment and Training Commission (NJ-SETC) Apprenticeship Committee. He will help move the Apprenticeship process forward in all sectors of NJ. John is also a proud Eagle Scout and National Distinguished Eagle.
