Antonio Veciana Blanch (October 18, 1928 – June 18, 2020) was a Cuban exile. He was recruited by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) to kill Fidel Castro. He was the founder and a leader of the anti-Castro group Alpha 66.

Veciana was briefly employed as treasurer by Maurice Ferré's 2004 campaign for mayor of Miami-Dade. He resigned after a few days, as he did not meet the state requirement of being a registered voter.

Veciana died in Miami on June 18, 2020 at the age of 91.
