Giovanni Lanza is telecommunications executive with over 30 years of industry experience. At the age of six Giovanni and his parents migrated from Monreale a small town South of Palermo, Sicily to Brooklyn, New York. Giovanni quickly grasped the English language and would often interpret letters and documents for his non-English speaking parents and relatives. As a young boy Giovanni had a passion for electronics and shortly after graduating John Dewey high school he enlisted in the United States Air Force and pursued a career in telecommunications and computer technology. During a two and a half year tour at a remote mountain-top near Naples, Italy Giovanni would frequently visit his grandmother, aunts, uncles and cousins in Monreale. He would often invite American GI’s and introduce them to his family and Sicilian heritage. To this day many retired military friends have returned to Sicily with their family and friends to experience the enchanted island. After being honorably discharged from the Air Force Giovanni partnered with several large and startup telecommunications and technology companies serving in various leadership positions across the US, India and Lithuania. Giovanni currently resides in the Dallas Fort Worth area with his wife Rosalia and daughters Gabrielle and Daniela. Giovanni also has two grown children, Giovanni and Maria and four grandchildren, Christyn, Kaitlyn, Peyton and Rylan.
