Vescovo had found himself at the bottom of the Mariana Trench as part of an ambitious series of dives. The Five Deeps Expedition hopes to explore the lowest parts of all the world’s oceans. And in some cases, Vescovo would be the first to see these profound depths.
A native of Dallas, Texas, Vescovo enjoyed an elite education, spanning Stanford University, MIT and Harvard Business School. In the world of finance, he made a name for himself as one of the founders of Insight Equity Holdings, where he invested primarily in electronics and defense firms.
No stranger to the sea, Vescovo also served in the U.S. Navy Reserve for more than two decades. Having stepped down from those duties, he subsequently focused on exploration. The Five Deeps Expedition is a part of the businessman’s mission to broaden our knowledge of the oceans and improve technology to help us understand them better.
