John Scherer is the CEO of Canless Air System www.canlessair.com. In this interview, John answers questions about the journey of the O2 Hurricane, about being more green, about the role social media plays in his company, and a few others.
This is probably one of the coolest inventions I have seen in a long time, how did you get the idea for Canless Air? The inventor contacted me in May of 2011, he’s been working on it for 12 years and wanted me to be the spokes person. The more I got to know about it, I knew I had to buy it, develop it and market it myself.
What was the biggest mistake or misstep you took and how did you correct it? The Misstep was matching the battery to the charger, we quickly identified the problem, matched them correctly and went back to the market. Rarely is anything perfect coming out of the box, it’s the ability to react quickly and adjust that is key in product success.
