As long time San Diego resident, Nino Venturella has built a large network of business relationships over 15+ years in the wealth management and mortgage industry. Prior to jumping into a career in finance, Nino was an art major who realized being a starving artist wasn't for him. He was able to tap into his creative side as he planned client events and training seminars which separated him from colleagues.

Having a passion for organizing niche philanthropic events, this led him to create the non-profit Cruise 4 Kids (C4K) which has been organizing fundraisers since 2011. C4K’s mission is to raise money through their charity events to support and fund other kids and youth organizations on a local, state, federal, and global level. C4K is truly a non-profit meaning that the officers do not take a salary and dedicate their time and resources for free. C4K produces The Teddy BallThe Bunny Ball, and Cruise 4 Kids Sports & Exotic Car Rally.

"We don't put on just any event, it's an experience. We want to help promote and bring awareness to other non-profits in the community that may not have the resources or ability to organize niche events."

Nino is also a Business Development Manager and Mortgage Loan Originator for Focus Capital. Focus Capital delivers disruptive, game-changing products in the mortgage lending industry. With over 50 years of combined experience, we specialize in finding creative solutions for our clients, providing a variety of elite services in the areas of retail, wholesale, and private lending.
