Frank Ferrante

Frank Ferrante Jr. is an entrepreneur and practicing attorney with an innate passion for nature, art, design, and fashion. Born in the USA to Italian parents, Frank dreamed of being an ambassador to Italy as well as working in any capacity with animals. He excelled in the arts and had an equal knack for business. In a series of odd turns of events, it was his law practice which eventually led him to live out all of his dreams: in 2000, he founded his law firm in NYC with the mission of promoting the “Made in Italy” branding movement in the USA. The privilege of working daily with the best of the best from the “Bel Paese” actually put him in the position of ambassadorship between the two nations.

In 2000, his unbridled enthusiasm for design and art led Frank to found, and then manage, a multinational corporation that was entrusted with the exclusive South American distribution mandate for several luxury Italian kitchen and furniture brands. What is more, Frank is a fierce and selfless defender and supporter of nature and animals: he made his first donation to the WWF at the age of 10, by collecting that year's birthday gift money! Today, Frank continues to be motivated by his passions, with the support of his sidekick, Stella the English bulldog, who accompanies him to work every day while he fights for his clients, for animals, and for the protection of nature, with class and style.
