DEAN DIOGUARDI | harvard business school

Dean is a native of New York City and graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2011 with a degree in international studies. While at Wisconsin, Dean spent a semester studying abroad at the American University in Cairo studying Arabic and International Development. After graduating from Wisconsin, Dean entered the Navy through Officer Candidate School as has spent the last 7 years in the military leading cross-functional teams across the globe. As a member of the military, health and fitness have played an integral role in the success of Dean’s teams and missions. This observation has cemented his drive to continue a life of service in the private sector, finding ways to make health and fitness more accessible to the general population, especially in underserved communities that are being left out of the latest health and fitness fads. He hopes to work in the industry in some way after graduating from Harvard Business School in 2021 and eventually start his own company that will help all citizens of the United States lead a healthy, happy and fit life.
