John’s experience in developing public and private facilities  coupled with his architectural background, give him a unique perspective.

As Senior Vice President and leader of Carter’s Program Management practice, John has spent the past 21 years dedicated to bringing new facilities on line for his public and private institutional partners. From strategic planning through design and construction phases he has been responsible for the successful development of billions of dollars in improvements including academic, athletic, performance, residential, recreation, lab, administrative and office facilities. 

John enjoys long-term relationships with his clients as evidenced by multi-phase implementation with nearly every client with whom he has worked. He also brings significant experience in public/private partnerships through cooperative relationships with academic institutions, their associated foundations and others.

Prior to joining Carter, John held various consulting and management positions with Intergraph Corporation at both the regional and national levels. He is a licensed architect and practiced for a number of years at Cooper Carry & Associates in Atlanta, Ga.

John’s most avid interest outside of work is golf. He also enjoys other outdoor activies including spending time at the Smoky Mountain National Park with family and friends. He is married to Gail, whom he met in college at the University of Tennessee, and they have one son, Sam, who graduated college in 2017.
