Among John’s many passions are sustainability and philanthropy. In 2003, under John’s leadership, Alberici completed the adaptive reuse of a manufacturing facility into the company’s 110,000 SF corporate headquarters in St. Louis. The headquarters building was among the first to achieve LEED Platinum certification from the U.S. Green Building Council and was featured by Newsweek as the “greenest” building in the world.
In 2006, John launched the Alberici Foundation, which makes sizable grants and charitable investments that reflect the interests of the Alberici family and corporation. One noteworthy grant, established in 2010, enabled Saint Louis University’s Center for Sustainability to offer in-demand graduate degrees in Sustainability, Urban Planning and Development, and Geographic Information Science.
John holds a Business Management degree from the University of Dayton and is a proud veteran of the U.S. Army.
