March 1, 2016 – Billerica, MA – JOH is proud to announce it is celebrating its 60th anniversary. Since 1956, JOH has worked diligently to become one of the strongest regional brokers in America. It has established an unrivaled presence along the East Coast with new offices in the Midwest and broker partners throughout the country. “None of this growth and expansion would be possible without the support of our many clients, customers and truly amazing JOHers,” said John Saidnawey, JOH President and COO.

“In our continuously changing industry, stability and vision are vital to a company’s success. We are thrilled to have a third generation O’Hare in the company who is rising to a leadership position,” said Chip O’Hare, JOH Chairman and CEO. “Matt O’Hare, JOH SVP Corporate Development, will help to nurture JOH’s mission of delivering excellent and valuable services to our clients and customers while embracing our core values of hard work, integrity, passion and the importance of family.”
