Gabriel Group is proud to name Dino Megaloudis as the company’s Vice President of Fundraising Services.
Dino comes to Gabriel Group from Squeaky Wheel Media, a digital marketing agency based in New York City. There, he worked as the Director of Client Services where he acted as the liaison between customers and internal teams while specializing in maximizing client satisfaction. Before that, he held multiple positions within the fundraising industry at various higher education institutions, which include New York Institute of Technology, Hofstra University and University of North Carolina. From his experience, Dino brings a well-rounded array of knowledge, including major gift cultivation, stewardship development and a focus on re-qualifying donors.
“We are ecstatic that Dino brings with him the ideal combination of customer service experience along with his background in fundraising,” CEO Dave Hawkins states.
“Our clients are the most important part of our business, and with his experience on both sides of the desk, we couldn’t be more confident in Dino’s unique ability to understand and deliver on our customers’ needs. He has an outstanding track record of both ensuring a high level of success as well as generating donations first-hand. We truly believe he will be a great fit for Gabriel Group and our clients.”
Dino graduated from the University of North Carolina, where he played collegiate soccer on a full athletic scholarship. He later went on to play professionally in Greece before a career-ending injury. When he isn’t working, Dino enjoys spending time with his kids, Stephen and Anastasia, as well as playing soccer and being outdoors.
