Susan Bellisario

Susan is the President of Bellisario Excavating and Drainage and has played a key role in the business from day one. When the original business, Pro-Lawn Landscaping began, Susan was the one who operated and managed the company’s records, until several years later, when the growing business called for additional office staff. Susan continues to manage the office while working in conjunction with Nick Bellisario to manage the staff and vision of Bellisario Excavating.

With over 25 years in business, Susan has built key, long-term, relationships within the industry and among their current customer base.

Nickolas Bellisario, III

Nickolas has been involved in the family business from a very young age. By working closely with his father (Nick) and the staff at Bellisario Excavating, he has developed the skills necessary to be a leader among the team. Nickolas is a graduate from Ithaca College with a degree in Business Administration and has since achieved several certifications and also holds a CDL license. From transporting large equipment to operating the equipment himself, the staff says he can “do it all.”  His desire to provide top quality customer service and exceed the expectations of each customer allow Bellisario Excavating to hold to the high-quality standards the business has grown on.
