Following graduation, John worked for Robinson-Humphrey in Atlanta, then attended Harvard Business School. During his distinguished career, John was a managing director and partner at Boston Consulting Group. He worked at Georgia-Pacific, consulted with Autotrader.com and Kraft Foods, and later became acting CEO of OneTouchPoint.

John reconnected and shared special time with classmates on the golf course just prior to his passing. A Tiger through and through, he was a loyal friend, kind person, and true gentleman. He was a man of both pride and humility, and he will be greatly missed.
The class extends heartfelt condolences to John’s father, John A. Wallace ’60; his siblings Laura and Michael; and his daughters Kate and Claire. RIP, Shark.
