InfoDan Debicella has been a resident of Shelton for over twenty-five years, and has been deeply involved with the community organizations while gaining experience in the business world. He hopes to bring his experience to have a positive impact on Connecticut and the towns of Shelton, Stratford, Monroe, and Seymour.

Dan and his family moved to Shelton from Bridgeport when he was seven. His father, Cal, was a policeman in Bridgeport and his Mom, Maggie, is a secretary in the federal judicial system. Dan and his three siblings went to Shelton public schools, and he graduated from Shelton High School in 1992. He was the first person in his family to attend college full-time, graduating magna cum laude from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania in 1996 with a degree in Finance. Dan went on to get his MBA from Harvard Business School in Boston in 2000, where he graduated in the top 5% of his class.

Dan has led a successful business career, from management consulting to running a small business to working for a Fortune 500 company. He spent five years as a management consultant for McKinsey & Co., where he advised Fortune 500 companies on sales and marketing issues. Dan also ran his own small Internet business, Textbooks Online, during the high tech boom of the late 1990’s. Currently, Dan is the Director of Strategy for Pepsi, where he helps develop long term marketing plans and product innovation.

Dan has been deeply involved with the community for the past two decades, both through local elective office and community organizations. Dan served on Shelton’s Board of Apportionment and Taxation for seven years, the last four as its Chairman. Dan currently represents Shelton, Stratford, Monroe, and Seymour on the Republican State Central Committee. Dan has also served on a number of municipal and political committees over the years, and has managed several campaigns (including managing retiring State Senator George “Doc” Gunther’s campaign in the past several elections).

In addition, Dan has been a member of numerous community organizations. Dan serves on the Board of Directors of Junior Achievement for Western Connecticut, and on the Board of Incorporators of both the Shelton/Derby Boys & Girls Club and the Birmingham Group. He is a lifelong member of St. Lawrence Parish in Shelton.

Dan currently lives in Shelton with his wife Alexandra.
