Nick Iovacchini is a co-founder and the Chief Executive Officer of Bella Consultants. He first became interested in exploring the opportunities of Dual Citizenship while working on his MA in International business and Investment. His passion for study of the Italian language, together with his vision of an integrated global work force, inspired his interests in helping others obtain Dual Citizenship.
Nick was fortunate enough to experience the value of Dual Citizenship first-hand, having lived and worked abroad for several years. His experiences culminated when, as an Italian citizen, he was selected to represent Italy as a player at the World University Baseball Championships in 2002.
Nick’s previous experience as a small business owner and his genuine interest in helping others reconnect with their heritage infuses Bella Consultants with experience and enthusiastic leadership.
