In our years of work together on the America’s Languages Initiative, John Tessitore’s personal connections and remarkable communication skills have turned speculation into reality, imaginative concepts into extraordinary practice, and almost impossible visions into genuine enthusiasm and significant resources.

Working with John Tessitore is a great experience. He brings a creative intellect with a willingness to roll-up his sleeves and get the work done – whatever that may be.

I’ve worked with John Tessitore on numerous projects with national profiles. His ability to manage not only the project but the multiple personalities that often come with the national stage is a talent that few possess. John’s intellect and intuition allow him to consider the big picture, manage the details, and anticipate the landmines. Hiring John is the right decision.
