John Kraus heads up Liquid Capital of Western Pennsylvania, based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, which offers alternative financing solutions to small and medium sized businesses.

John, a lawyer, is a graduate of the University of Michigan, School of Business (B.B.A., Accounting) and Case Western Reserve School of Law. He began his practice with the firm of Jones Day in Columbus Ohio, transferred to London England, and finally to Chicago.  He then left private practice to work in Pittsburgh at H. J. Heinz Company where he was a tax lawyer, V.P. of Corporate Governance, Compliance and Ethics, and finally General Counsel of Heinz North America.

John always had an interest in having his own business, so when Heinz was bought out in 2013 he started Liquid Capital of Western Pennsylvania.
