Visionary Founder

Jim Albrecht

Nearly three decades ago, Dr. James Albrecht became one of the founding board members of the World Trade Center Institute. As passionate and forward thinking now as he was then, this year we are grateful and honored to recognize him as a founding member of WTCI’s exciting new Global Pathways for Students (GPS) program. Prior to his time as Vice President at McCormick & Company, Dr. Albrecht’s career as a distinguished scientist and respected leader also included prominent positions at Coca-Cola Company and Nestle. Dr. Albrecht’s vision and giving is laser-focused on “making a difference in the lives of young people.”Originally from Chicago, he has made his home in Baltimore and his support and mentorship of Baltimore City students is one of the many reasons we are so excited and honored to have him on board. Hidden talent: One thing you might not know about Jim is that he is also an accomplished pianist who has composed several albums with Makeda Rose, a talented Baltimore City vocalist.
