One of Daniel Edward Fitzgibbons favorite past-times is that of scuba diving. He has a great love for spending time under the water. One of his favorite places is that of Cabo Pulmo in Baja, California Sur. While the efforts to reach this spot may not be as easy as others, once you arrive, the trek becomes worth it. This place houses some of the healthiest coral reefs in the world and has a plethora of schools of rays, parrotfish, angelfish and eels. Daniel Edward Fitzgibbons compares the feeling of being underwater as other worldly and highly recommends it to all.

For Dan Fitzgibbons, Minnesota is home, although he wasn’t always there. He actually grew up in Fargo, North Dakota, where he attended Holy Spirit School and Shanley High. At Shanley, he was a member of the SandPebbles singing group and he played football, golf and intramural hockey. In short, he has always wanted to feel a part of the communities in which he lived.
Dan Fitzgibbons’ love of the state of Minnesota probably started when he earned a Bachelor of Science in Marketing and Business Administration from Moorhead State University in that state. After graduation, he eventually moved to Minneapolis for career reasons. Now a prominent member of the Minneapolis community, Dan Fitzgibbons, his beautiful wife and his two wonderful children couldn’t imagine living anywhere else. He has always believed that giving back to the community is the least a business leader can do, which is why he is so active with Minneapolis charities, such as Loaves and Fishes, a very effective charity that feeds the poor. In 2015 alone, they served up more than 450,000 hot meals to those who may have otherwise done without.

It seems as if Daniel Edwards Fitzgibbons developed his appreciation for the primacy of family and community while he was growing up in Fargo, North Dakota. He was the youngest of five children, but it seems to have been a positive experience as he attended grade school at Holy Spirit School and high school at Shanley High. While there, he participated in a singing group and played football, golf and intramural hockey. He got a degree and worked hard and he has since had a long 30-year career in the tech industry. However, most who know him, know that there is more to him than that.
Daniel Edwards Fitzgibbons has proven himself in his current position as Data Protection Business Manager for the Minneapolis office of EMC Corporation, but he also loves his community. Minnesota eventually became home when he went to college at Moorhead State and he eventually moved to Minneapolis. These days, Dan appreciates his good fortune and he tries to give back as much as possible in any way he can. For example, through his work with Bridging, he helps the homeless, by making sure those who are transitioning out of homelessness have the most basic household items they need to get them set up properly.
