Shortly after Solidarity’s triumph in Poland, John put his corporate career on hold and became a volunteer in a US government program created to assist the newly freed economies of Eastern Europe. After completing the program in 1992, John launched Lynka, an industry-leading producer of sportswear and corporate clothing he still co-owns and manages.
