A rising star in the public affairs and corporate communications, arenas, Adam Alberti is responsible for more than $5 billion in major real-estate development projects at the San Francisco-based firm. According to agency president Sam Singer, Alberti’s innovative thinking and ability to generate strong public support is key to many projects’ ultimate success. Alberti now spearheads a number of accounts, including the Transbay Joint Powers Authority, which is charged with creating one core transit center and mixed-use development in downtown San Francisco. He is also a key member of teams serving Bay Meadows Land Company and Norcal Waste Systems’ massive food-scrap recycling program. A one-time liaison between San Francisco 49ers owner Eddie DeBartolo and the team’s players and coaches, he left to join political consulting firm Staton & Hughes. From there he continued on to GCI Group before joining Singer.
