Colonel (Retired) Joe DeAntona is one of the most potent leader development experts in the world today. Unmatched in passion and intuition, he leaves a wake of greatness in those under his tutelage.

From a modest upbringing in Scranton, Pennsylvania, Joe went on to play Division 1 College Football at his eventual alma mater, the United States Military Academy at West Point. Endlessly driven, he later achieved three Masters Degrees in the fields of Strategic Studies and Human Factors Psychology.

Upon commissioning as a Second Lieutenant in Army Air Defense Artillery, Joe began an illustrious career of service to the Nation that spanned more than three decades. He spent a sizable portion of his service time overseas on assignment and leading troops during operational deployments like Operations Desert Shield/Desert Storm, Iraqi Freedom, and Enduring Freedom, among others. When stationed in the United States, one of his passions was teaching at the university level, where he instructed for a total of seven years. West Point, recognizing Joe’s penchant for developing others, brought him back for a record three tours to work with cadets across the entire spectrum of growth. He served, separately, as an assistant professor in the Department of Behavioral Sciences and Leadership, as the Brigade Tactical Officer (Dean of Student Affairs), and as the Deputy Athletic Director for the United States Corps of Cadets.

The Army was but a chapter in Joe’s commitment to service. He continues to travel the world as a leadership and strategy advisor while committed as a husband, father, and humanitarian.

Joe is simply unforgettable; a “once in a lifetime” encounter.
