John Danes

Vice-President of Operations


I have been with Kent Elastomer Products since 1987. I literally grew up here. I love that we are very family-oriented. None of us wants to be the one to let our co-workers down. I am pleased that we continually challenge each other to improve every facet of our business. We never rest on our previous successes.

I have a bachelor’s degree in business management, am lean-certified and have participated in multiple leadership and team-building training classes throughout my career. I like working with our customers and employees on new challenges.

My main hobby is fishing. God has blessed me with a wonderful family and a great job. My childhood sweetheart, Dreamma, became my wife 23 years ago. We have two kids and are guardians to my nephew.
