FRANK A. DIBELLO

PRESIDENT & CEO, SPACE FLORIDA, CAPE CANAVERAL

Space Florida was created as a public corporation to enable growth and diversification of the aerospace industry in Florida. The organization serves as the state’s Space Authority to guide the development of the state’s spaceport system, offering facilities and financing for aerospace companies to research, develop and launch business ventures. DiBello, among other plaudits, was given the Department of Defense Distinguished Public Service Award for volunteer activities with the United Services Organization (USO) to refocus its programs for changing needs of military families.

EDUCATION Villanova University (BS)
PROFESSIONAL EVOLUTION I evolved from doing defense studies for the Pentagon to a career with a large public accounting firm, and made the transition to financing aerospace entities, infrastructure, mergers and acquisitions and eventually satellites and space systems.
SOMETHING SURPRISING I am basically shy and uncomfortable speaking in the public forum.
