Dee Newson, born and raised in the City of Angels is a true “Cali Boy.” With the exception of not being a surfer dude, he is laid back and likes to have fun (even if that means, poking fun). As he likes to say, he is naturally tan yet unrefined. Dee brings his quirky sense of humor to the table when interacting with people. Dee received his PhD in Industrial-Organizational Psychology from the University of South Florida.
From a career perspective, Dee is an Organizational Development consultant, both internally and externally. Dee’s OD consulting experience spans several industries including non profit, technology, financial services, insurance, and energy (oil and gas). Dee has a passion for helping to improve the productivity and shareholder value of organizations, by the proper utilization of its greatest asset; human capital. Although he deplores the summer humidity, the friendships he has made since moving to Tampa have made it feel like his home.
Dee joined the board of the D-10 Society, shortly after attending a 4th of July event in 2008. He was impressed with the diversity of people who attended the organization’s events, and knew he found a group with which he would build an everlasting friendship. Although Dee now lives in Seattle, he continues to support the D-10 Society and attends most major events. He considers all of the board members to be his family. When Dee is not working or engaged in charitable activities, he enjoys traveling internationally, working out, and snowboarding.
