About me: Originally from Los Angeles, California, Diego completed his undergraduate degree at the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York. After graduating, he served as a logistics officer in the United States Army within the 7th Transportation Brigade (Expeditionary) at Fort Eustis, Virginia.
During his military service, Diego led teams ranging from 40 to 160 soldiers in transporting cargo from ship to shore at degraded ports and bare beaches and in establishing freight reception/distribution nodes alongside railheads and ports. He led these teams within the US, Germany and Kuwait and received several military decorations for his contributions towards military logistics.
Diego chose to attend LBS for its incredibly diverse cohort, its emphasis on a global perspective and its location within the city of London. He plans to learn from his peers and the programme in order to assist him with his transition towards the technology sector.
In his free time, he enjoys planning weekend hikes and trips throughout Europe, working out at the LBS gym and exploring the pub culture within London.
Three topics I can be approached about: MBA for those with a non-business background; why LBS as an American.
