John was led into the PR career field through a chance encounter with a career counselor at Lackland Air Force Base. More than 24 years later he still gets excited when his efforts lead to media coverage or land a client on stage at a conference. Prior to joining TMG, Tews spent more than 16 years in corporate communications at J.D. Power and Associates in Troy, MI. He also served as a public affairs officer in the United States Air Force and as a journalist at The Saginaw News.
