His business acumen and commitment to serving others have taken him around the world—and eventually brought him to Chaminade.
Panzarella is truly a perfect fit for the Hogan program, a signature initiative at the university that relies on strong collaborations with executives and challenges students to turn their ideas into business plans.
Panzarella sees Hogan students as ethical, transformational and innovative leaders-in-training.

He also has master’s degrees in Human Development and in International Relations, from Boston University and the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University, respectively.
Panzarella received his bachelor’s degree from the US Military Academy at West Point.
He considers serving others his lifelong calling and has volunteered his time with a long list of organizations, including the Chamber of Commerce, advisory board of NYU Abu Dhabi’s Department of Engineering and the Board of Trustees for the American School of Warsaw.
