John R. Cali

John R. Cali began his real estate career in 1977 and was the building partner for three housing developments totaling over 160 single-family homes. As the opportunities in the real estate market shifted to the commercial sector, John took on development of office buildings for Cali Associates. Between 1980 and 1990 he had direct responsibility for all aspects of project management for three buildings totaling 550,000 SF including, governmental approvals, financing, construction without the use of general contractors, fine tuning mechanical systems, tenant fit up, leasing coordination, property management, and operations. He guided the construction of an additional 450,000 SF as director of development.

In 1987, John took on responsibility for restructuring the Cali Associates office systems and management of office personnel. As the company grew, he also developed and organized the leasing and property management departments to cope with the increasing size of the portfolio. John also was a member of the Executive and Long Range Planning Committees for Cali Associates from 1981 to 1994.

Cali Associates became the Real Estate Investment Trust, Cali Realty Corporation, after its successful IPO in August 1994. John served as Chief Administrative Officer and Head of Acquisitions for the public company until 1997. During that time, under John's direction, the company portfolio increased in size from 2.2 million to 10 million SF through acquisitions. In 1997, Cali Realty Corp. merged with the Mack Companies and became Mack-Cali Realty Corp. with a portfolio of over 20 million square feet of commercial office space. After the merger, John took on duties as Executive Vice President-Head of Development until June 2000, at which time he left to pursue private development opportunities in non-commercial sectors.

John currently is a member of the Advisory Board of Mack-Cali Realty Corp.

John holds a Bachelor's degree from Hobart College and a M.Ed. degree in counseling, organizational development, and personnel from the University of Missouri.
