Meet Blake Balch! He is the Director of Client Relations & Business Development here at Ellis Island Capital.

✔️ What’s the favorite part of your job, Blake?

I enjoy getting to use skills and experience I have gained working at U.S. Department of State. At the State Department I worked on consular and immigration issues, so for our clients, I can use those skills to help them gain permanency in the US.

✔️ What do you like to do when you’re not working?

I like to hike, ski, and travel around Europe with my family. I have two daughters (2 and 7 months) and the youngest just made her first trip to the USA last week!

✔️ What’s something about you that not many people know?

I lived in Europe for 5 years. I stayed in Vienna, Austria and now in Geneva, Switzerland.
