Corvias grows Solutions team with new SVP

John DiBari has been appointed senior vice president of finance after nine years with the company.


Corvias Group has appointed John DiBari as a senior vice president of finance, the latest of a string of fresh hires intended to bulk up its Solutions team.

In his new role, DiBari will meet with existing and potential customers of Corvias Solutions to create customised financing solutions that will involve working with banks, investment shops, state-run organisations and other financing firms. His aim will be to expand the reach of Corvias' public-private partnership (PPP; P3) model “to solve the infrastructure, energy and facility issues that are challenging public sector institutions across the country,” the company said in a statement.

DiBari began his career at Corvias in 2006, working as a financial analyst before reaching the position of vice president of finance, his most recent role. He is credited with participating in the founding of Corvias Solutions and Corvias Campus Living, with which he was responsible for handling financing for recent partnerships with Prince George's County and the University System of Georgia.

“In his nine years with the company, John has proven to have some deep understanding of our partnerships that go beyond the business of sourcing financing,” said Corvias Group founder and chief executive John Picerne. “John's ability to understand our partners' needs and produce viable financial solutions brings tremendous credibility to our model and company.”

Prior to Corvias, DiBari worked as a senior account executive for email marketing firm FreshAddress and a program developer for online reviewing program BzzAgent. DiBari holds board member positions with the Aquidneck Island Planning Commission and the Newport Opera House.

Corvias Group is a privately-owned company that works on behalf of the US military, colleges and universities, and public sector agencies to develop tailored solutions aimed at providing remedies to challenging infrastructure and facilities deficiencies caused by “chronic underinvestment,” according to the release.

The company earlier this week hired Jason Washington and John Campagna as vice presidents within its Solutions unit.
