Meet Our Staff: John Whaling


How would you describe what you do at Protectowire FireSystems? 

As President and Chief Operating Officer it is my responsibility to operate the company as efficiently as possible and adhere to our corporate policies as defined in our Quality and Mission Statements. It is also my responsibility to ensure that Protectowire is always responsive to customer’s needs by leading the industry in developing innovative products and services that deliver real benefits to our worldwide customers.



I couldn’t live without my…  

Family, who over the years have not only been understanding, but also completely supportive of all my personal and business goals.



What would you be doing if you weren’t at your current job?  

Hopefully this answer will never come true as I truly love working here at Protectowire. I not only take great pride in this company and its products but also the people who work here as they are a dedicated group of individuals that know teamwork is a critical ingredient in achieving success.



How do you recharge?

I enjoy being physically fit and to that end I closely watch my diet and exercise daily.



When I’m not at work, you can find me… 

In the Spring, Summer and Fall on the golf course or on my boat, both of which I enjoy immensely. In winter I stay active with home projects, reading and visiting the gym.



Something you’ve learned working for Protectowire.  

The importance of teamwork! Virtually no one has all the answers to every problem, but we can always move forward at a faster pace in finding solutions, if we work as a team.



What are three things still left on your bucket list?? 

1) Shoot my age in golf (I may have to live to be 100 to achieve this goal)!

2) Never completely retire.

3) Exceed my physical fitness goals.
