John’s experience in representing public and private Colleges and Universities in the successful delivery of facilities, coupled with his architectural background, gives him a unique perspective.

As Senior Vice President and leader of Carter’s Program Management practice, John has spent the past 18 years dedicated to bringing new facilities on line for his public and private institutional partners. From strategic planning through financing, design and construction phases he is, or has been, responsible for the successful development of over $2 billion in improvements including academic, athletic, performance, residential, recreation, lab and administrative facilities. 

John enjoys long term relationships with his educational partners 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 as appropriate.

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, Georgia.
