Vice President, Fundraising Services
Hi, I am Dino … I joined Gabriel Group in September of 2017. I have worked in the fundraising world for 12 years. I started as a Major Gift Director for the University of North Carolina for 10 years and then spent 2 years as Associate Athletic Director of Development for Hofstra University on Long Island. Prior to my fundraising career, I spent 13 years in the Technology Consulting business as a Senior Sales/Relationship Manager in NYC. I attended the University of North Carolina on a full athletic scholarship for soccer and had great success with the sport. After I graduated from UNC, I was fortunate enough to play professionally in Greece before a second serious knee operation ended my playing career.
When I am not in the office, I enjoy spending time with my family and kids, Stephen and Anastasia. I also still play soccer 2-3 times a week and love to do anything outdoors.
My first job was working at a deli on Long Island making sandwiches and running the front counter when I was a senior in high school.
As a child, I wanted to grow up to be a professional soccer player (which I fulfilled, but only for one year).
