Jack Giampalmi


Jack GiampalmiJack Giampalmi, a business environmentalist, has held executive management positions with The Dow Chemical Company and The Conference Board (a premier global business research and networking organization for senior executives). During his career with Dow Chemical, he progressed through a series of increasingly responsible positions to become Director, Environmental Operations.

During his tenure with The Conference Board, Giampalmi was Director of the Townley Global Management Center for Environmental Health and Safety. Under his leadership, the Center added more than 100 Fortune 500 companies as members. A key element of his success with the Center was the development of a broadly integrative approach to environmental management. This approach was organized around the relationships between sustainable development, corporate reputation, economics, social responsibility, and regulatory compliance. As a part of his work to expand the Center, he became recognized as a keynote speaker and presenter at CEO forums and executive conferences.

Giampalmi has a BS in chemistry and has completed the Wharton Business School Executive Finance Program. He holds several patents on innovative chemical processes, and has authored papers on sustainable development, environmental health and safety, and management for the new millennium. He is also the Co-Founder and CEO of the AJG Scholarship Fund, a charitable fund providing college scholarships for students with cystic fibrosis.
