    John Crane Celebrates Ten Years With Trauner

    December 15, 2011

    john_craneWhile it doesn’t feel like it was that long ago, John Crane has been with Trauner for 10 years as of November 26, 2011! John has survived two office moves with the Orlando office, the transition from Corel to Microsoft, the days when we had only one dial-up internet line, many late nights at the office, and a constant barrage of jokes and digs about his beloved home state of West Virginia. Through it all, John has been a consistently positive person, always willing to do the little things that give our company and his client’s an elevated chance at success.

    Please join us in thanking John for his efforts throughout the last 10 years at Trauner and for being a great asset to our team. We all look forward to AT LEAST the next 10!!
