A Naperville resident for over 15 years, John Krummen served on multiple boards and commissions before his election to the City Council in 2015. A proponent of innovation within City government, John’s passion in his new role is to keep spending down while helping attract technologically innovative jobs to Naperville.
A native of Cincinnati, Ohio, John graduated from the University of Cincinnati with both bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Mechanical Engineering. His first job out of college was driving corvettes around the GM proving grounds at 120 mph. (And yes, they paid him, too!) John later moved to South Bend, Indiana, to work for Bosch Braking Systems where he developed an automotive patent and published multiple technical papers on automotive design.
While working for Bosch, John earned an MBA from Indiana University and then moved to Naperville. Today, John is in technical sales leadership with a small manufacturing startup. John is also an adjunct professor of graduate level economics and finance at a handful of local universities.
John has two sons with his wife Barbara, who passed away from cancer in 2001. David and Nathan Krummen both live in Denver. David is in graduate school at UC-Denver studying child psychology and works at a youth charity. Nathan works in the contracts department for DISH network.
When not at the dais, John has a Yamaha FZ1000 motorcycle that he enjoys riding on multiple long-distance trips, including to San Francisco, Mexico and Canada.
Councilman Krummen's current term expires in 2021.
