Lou Candiello

Diversity Engagement Leader for Military & Disability Talent

Lou’s desire to serve came at an early age. The son of a World War II veteran, whose father served in the Army in the China Burma India Theater, Lou joined the US Marine Corps Reserves while still in high school. He was called to active duty during college, and served as a Corporal during Operation Desert Storm/Shield as an Aircraft Firefighting & Rescue Crew Chief.

Lou has held several roles at Dell over the past 13 years. Currently, Lou is the Diversity Engagement Leader for Military & Disability Talent for Dell where he is responsible for the creation and implementation of a Veteran recruiting strategy across the company. He partners closely with military bases, Veteran Service Organizations (VSOs), Universities, and community-based organizations to attract, recruit, and retain transitioning service members, military spouses, and student veterans to Dell. In addition, Lou is one of the leaders of Dell’s Veterans Employee Resource Group and is also responsible for leading Dell’s efforts as a founding member of the Veteran Jobs Mission.
