John McMillan

Operations Support Coordinator

My name is John McMillan and I have lived in Alabaster, AL for the past twenty years.  I am a graduate of the University of Montevallo with a degree in English.  I have spent the last thirty years working in background screening, as well as office and operations administration and management.  Most recently, I worked with Liberty National as a supervising agent.  I strongly feel that it is important to listen closely to what other people say. By doing so, you can help others while learning new things about yourself.
