John Renison is an entrepreneur by heart, and traditional conservative family man. He is currently Founder & CEO of Piggyback Technologies where he enables large e-commerce companies to offer on demand same-day deliveries to their customers by using innovative technologies and a distributed workforce.

John has always enjoyed starting and running businesses. In fact, by the time he was 17, he had already started working for his Mothers U.S. Customs Brokerage, Britton & Company, in which he learned the value of hard work and leadership skills. Soon afterwards, John was actively engaged within the international trade industry and business organizations as a strong advocate of the Customs Trade partnership against Terrorism and Homeland Security industry partnership programs.

In his early adulthood, John joined a border drug demand reduction initiative led by Californians for Drug Free Youth as the Bi-national Exchange Program Manager, where he demonstrated his leadership skills by bringing together a coalition of law enforcement and health officials from both sides of the border to work jointly to reduce the consumption of illicit drugs in San Diego and the Imperial Valley.

He also serves as CEO of his family business Britton & Company, which is a licensed U.S. Customs Brokerage that helps U.S. Importers and foreign manufacturers transact customs business on their behalf. John got into this line of business in 1995 right after graduating from high school. 

He enjoys serving as CEO of his family business as it has defined who he is as an entrepreneur. In early 2015, he was invited by San Diego State University as a TEDX speaker to give an inspiring talk about “how to not loose the child within” and in December 2014 John was nominated as Discover San Diego Entrepreneur of the month.

John is a past participant of the Program on Negotiation for Senior Executives a Harvard/MIT/Tufts consortium and holds a Certificate in Legal Studies from Boston University. John lives with his wife Renata and two daughters Marietta and Renata in Coronado California.

Creencias poliza

Filosofía política

I understand the value of hard work. I am raising my family in San Diego because it is the greatest city in the world. At an early age, I joined my family owned small business and under my leadership, we have created many jobs for our community and strongly believe that government should aid innovation and advancement, not stifle it.

My experience in the on demand economy sector with the creation of my startup has helped me understand the needs of San Diego’s economy first hand. I know how to run a business and how to adapt to an ever changing world. I can lead our area the same way I have led my business, with common sense practices and real world ideas. Recently I was Discover San Diego Entrepreneur of the Month and have been an inspirational speaker on entrepreneurship. 

I understand what it will take to have California ready for the 21st century. I know how to work around the clock to achieve real results and not be another in a long line of ineffective Sacramento politicians that are there to please special interestsI will dedicate my time and energy to making San Diego safe and successful. Most of all, I want to make sure that we have a fantastic place for my family and yours.
