Donato Giuseppi III

Board of Trustees
As a member of the Founders Council and original Board of Trustees, Don has been inspired to be part of the mission of the San Miguel Academy of Newburgh since it first opened its doors in 2006.  Don became Chairman of the Board of Trustees in 2021. As a former student of Fr. Mark Connell at John F. Kennedy Catholic High School in Somers, NY, Don learned the value of faith, compassion, and a quality education.  He then went on to Boston College, where he graduated in 2002 with Bachelor of Science degrees in Finance, Economics, and Theology, with the latter being the most fulfilling accreditation. After college, Don began his career at UBS, where he still works today.  Initially, he worked as an investment banker in the Financial Institutions Group, focusing primarily on advising leading Financial Markets & Technology companies on strategic M&A and capital raising transactions, both domestically and cross-border.  He then transitioned to Chief Operating Officer for investment banking in the Americas for four years, where he worked very closely with senior management on planning, monitoring and executing all strategic initiatives, business operations and risk control oversight.  Since 2014, Don has led the efforts of bringing unique capital market investment opportunities to eligible Ultra High Net Worth and Family Office clients.  The Direct Investments Group has particular focus on direct equity and direct real estate private placements. Don married his wife, Jamie, in 2006 and they have three children: Sienna, Donato and Luca.  Residing in Pelham, NY, Don is an active member of his community, where he coaches his kids in hockey, baseball, softball, and basketball.  Don and his family enjoy skiing, traveling, and playing with their dogs, Nyla and Hudson.
