Nicholas James Stone is a native of Melbourne Australia who moved to New York City in 2010. He envisioned Bluestone Lane whilst attending Business School in New York, with the idea of providing a premium coffee experience that can be readily found in Melbourne Australia (but not readily in New York).
Nick has extensive corporate finance and strategy experience with ANZ Banking Group Limited and UBS Investment Bank, advising and financing some of the world’s largest consumer & services companies in United States, Europe and the Asia/Pacific.
Prior to banking, Nick was a professional Australian Rules Football (AFL) player for 6 seasons, having been selected in the 1999 AFL National Draft from Wesley College, Australia (High School).
