John Schuster has worked in very different industries throughout his career. He received his BA in History and Political Science from Boston College in 2001. Immediately afterwards he pursued his law degree from the University of Iowa. Still not quite done with school, John then decided to obtain his MBA degree in Entrepreneurship, graduating in the class of 2006.
After graduating from the Wisconsin School of Business, John decided to start his own law firm in the Fox Valley Area, focusing primarily on business real estate, eventually adding two partners to the law firm. Having an education in business helped him considerably in this endeavor, giving him the necessary skills in marketing and finance to successfully run the business. In 2015, John decided to spin off into Caliber Law, a firm focusing on business and real estate law.
Through his law practice he became aware of Keenline Conveyor Systems, a family owned business in Omro Wisconsin, who had been a client of his for five years. The company has been around for 75 years and John believed he could add value to the business through his experience and education in entrepreneurship and business. Additionally, John has experience in manufacturing through his family, describing himself as having “metal in his blood.” In 2020, after purchasing the company, John assumed the role of CEO and Owner of Keenline Conveyor Systems.
Since 2020, John has been able to continuously grow the business, by double digits year over year. He has approached the long-standing business from the viewpoint of a startup and has been able to bring the thought processes behind the business into the modern age. John also heavily utilizes his marketing and pitching skills to secure continued contracts for the business.
John is clearly a very talented business and law professional. His leadership style is one of positivity and leading by example. John never asks his employees to do anything he wouldn’t do himself. We are rooting for John and are excited to see where his business and his conveyor belts lead to.
