Humanitarian and Businessman, Dan Fitzgibbons

As far as Dan Fitzgibbons is concerned, family has always occupied a prominent role in his life, from the time he was the youngest of five children growing up in Fargo, where he attended grade school and high school. While he was in high school, he was very busy, becoming involved in a singing group and a key club at the same time he played for his high school football and golf teams, as well as intramural hockey. He then obtained a Bachelor of Science in Marketing and Business Administration from Moorhead State University in Minnesota, just over the state line from Fargo.

Even though Dan Fitzgibbons has expertise when it comes to the business of computer storage systems, his goal is to be seen as a lot more. He is good at his job, of course. Currently, he serves as Data Protection Business Manager for the Minneapolis, Minnesota office of EMC Corporation, a 37-year-old company that has grown to become a very prominent international technology company, producing revenue of more than $24 billion so far in 2016 and employing more than 70,000 globally. He himself has more than 25 years of technology and sales experience, which makes him one of the best. But he’s also developed into something of a community leader in his adopted home in the Greater Minneapolis Area.

Now married with two children, Dan Fitzgibbons moved to the Twin Cities some time ago, and he loves his adopted home enough that he works hard to give back when he can. He helps to feed the hungry, working with Loaves and Fishes, a program that served more than 460,000 nutritious, hot meals to the poor in 2015 and Allan Law’s 363 Days Food Program, which worked with Minneapolis Recreation Development and hundreds of community groups to distribute more than 600,000 sandwiches to the hungry and homeless. With Dress for Success Twin Cities, he worked to help them increase the economic independence of women through empowerment. Working with Bridging, he helped provide people who were transitioning out of homelessness with basic household items.
