John Sheffield


ESM Prep - Partner + COO
EY - Transaction Advisory Services

I believe in the power of a well-aligned team. Through my experiences playing college and "professional" football, and as COO of an educational services company, I saw how setting clear expectations, holding myself and others accountable, empowering others, and celebrating successes could drive powerful results. Our team quadrupled in size and built sustainable infrastructure that not only created value for investors, but brought us closer to achieving our mission of helping young people discover and achieve their dreams.

SPUR values the power of the team, and I'm looking to acquire a business with a strong team and culture that I can shepherd through its next phase of growth.
