SERGIO R. SANTOS, MBA

Sergio R. Santos’ service to country began at the United States Naval Academy, where he earned his commission in the U.S. Marine Corps. Over the next six years, he served as a Scout Sniper Platoon Commander, Company Commander, and Battalion Intelligence Officer with 1st Battalion / 1st Marines. In that time, he earned numerous awards, deployed on two overseas tours, and was one of the first Marines in Afghanistan following the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Over the next 12 years as a Lead Consultant and Small Business Executive, he spearheaded multi-million-dollar projects in the retail, aerospace, government, and nonprofit industries.
Previously serving as the Manager for Diversity Recruiting Programs at Boston Scientific – Sergio has been able to pursue his true passion as a champion for the rights, engagement, wellness, and employment of Veterans and People with Disabilities.

Sergio earned his MBA from the University of Minnesota’s Carlson School of Management. He currently resides in San Antonio, TX (aka “Military City USA”) with his wife, children, and “devil dogs.” Although he shed his uniform nearly 20 years ago, Sergio will be the first to tell you that he is always: “Here to serve!”
