John DeBlasio

Advisory Board

John P. DeBlasio serves as a member on the Advisory Board for Workstorm. DeBlasio brings extensive professional expertise as the chairman of DT Global and DT Institute, founder and executive director of the Global Peace and Development (GPD) Charitable Trust, CEO of Clear Automation, and managing director of private equity firm Bootstrap Capital.

After selling Sallyport Global Services to D.C. Capital Partners in 2011, DeBlasio took the “Gates-Buffett Giving Pledge,” subsequently dedicating more than half (~85%) of his net worth to charitable causes. Since its inception, the GPD Charitable Trust has committed over fifteen million dollars in charitable contributions to over twenty-three organizations globally, with the primary goal of creating more opportunity for others to promote peace and democracy worldwide.

In 2019, DeBlasio became the chairman of DT Global after the successful merger and acquisition of AECOM International Development, Development Transformations, and the GPD Charitable Trust. Today, DT Global applies ingenuity, evidence, and passion to everything it does.

DeBlasio is currently serving on the Board of Directors of the Chicago Council on Global Affairs, the Illinois Joining Forces Foundation, the Crown Center for Middle East Studies at Brandeis University, the Social Science Foundation (Korbel School of International Affairs at Denver University), Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos International (NPHI), the Rafik Hariri Center for the Middle East, and MVP Vets.
