John Lanier, Executive Director of the Ray C. Anderson Foundation

John A. Lanier is the Executive Director of the Ray C. Anderson Foundation, a private family foundation carrying forward the legacy of its namesake by supporting environmental sustainability initiatives. In 1973, Ray founded Interface, which became the world's largest carpet tile manufacturer. From 1994 until his passing in 2011, Ray worked tirelessly to advance sustainability at his company and in the business sector generally. 

John, one of Ray's five grandchildren, shares his late grandfather's passion for the Earth and its natural systems. John is a graduate of Marist School and earned a B.A. and J.D. from the University of Virginia. After college, John worked for the law firm Sutherland Asbill and Brennan in Atlanta, practicing Federal tax law. Like Rotary, he believes in serving his community and has done so by serving most recently as Vice President of Service and Spirituality for the Marist Alumni Association for five years. He also serves on the Board of Directors of the nonprofits Southface and Chattahoochee NOW, based in Atlanta, and Project Drawdown, based in San Francisco. He lives in Atlanta with his wife and young son.
