Donzelli, previously COO, is leading the network’s mission to ensure that HLB International cements its position as a global player in the industry.
Donzelli joined HLB International in February 2012 as head of strategic network development and then moved to the position of COO in August 2015. During that time, he has diligently helped grow the network’s cross-border business, and drove HLB International’s growth rate.

He has a great vision for the network and is dedicated to ensuring the future success of HLB International.”
Donzelli’s career has focused on leading business development projects, entrepreneurial initiatives, business transformation and change management programs. He started his career in Italy, where after a brief period with Deloitte, he moved to Deutsche Bank, where he spent over six years in both commercial and internal consultancy roles before moving to the U.K. There, he set up a food-tech business and then joined MagicSolver, a top U.K. mobile innovator.
Donzelli says, “I am excited to be taking up my new position and delivering on our mission to help support our member firms and their clients leverage business advantages that will result in growth.”
