Senior Fellow, Reason Foundation
John H. Ramsey is a senior fellow at Reason Foundation.
After earning a master’s degree in business administration with distinction from Harvard Business School, Ramsey had a 40-year financial management career in business and government. He worked as the chief financial officer of Union Commerce Corporation and Sunsweet Growers and started two companies, Mark Stanley & Company and EMA Partners International.
For three years during his decade of service in the US Air Force, Ramsey was a project manager in a multi-billion-dollar defense weapons system acquisition. He also directed a major analysis of return on investment and progress payments for Deputy Secretary of Defense David Packard and the Defense Department’s Industry Advisory Council in 1971-72.
