One of the new faces here at Olive Tree Bible Software is John Cruz.  John has many years in the Christian publishing industry, and joins us as the Vice President for Publisher Relations.  Bringing John on board is part of our commitment here at Olive Tree to bring you the very best Christian content available.

John’s excitement about Olive Tree is infectious. Over the years he has witnessed how technology has helped make God’s Word even more available, however the explosive potential of mobile and desktop software astounds him with its possibilities:  “We can reach more people in the most remote places now with Smartphones,” John says. This means that those who couldn’t be reached before might at last be able to have the Word.

Our CEO, Drew Haninger said of John:”With over 14 years of various executive positions at the International Bible Society, Mr. Cruz will bring a wealth of talent and experience to the Olive Tree staff.  We’re excited about the contribution he will bring in the area of publisher relationships.”

This week, John will be representing us at the Frankfurt Book Fair, the annual meeting place of experts in publishing, booksellers, film producers, agents, or authors.

“I’m looking forward to seeing familiar faces from around the world I’ve worked with for many years. I’m thrilled to be part of a company that has generated so much excitement around the growth of unique and innovative software solutions for the casual Bible reader and serious Bible student,” John says regarding his new position, “Es una alegría ser parte de Árbol Olive!”

John is married to Kristine, and has three sons in college.
