Meet The Carvonis Group Team
Krystoff Carvonis, Founder/CEO
Krystoff Carvonis was born and raised in Port-Au-Prince Haiti. Starting at the young age of 5, he entered the equestrian sport in the show jumping division. Eager to represent his country internationally, he started traveling throughout Western Europe, the Americas and the Caribbean. With Haiti experiencing an uneasy political climate, it was difficult for Krystoff to strive in the sport, so at the age of 15, Krystoff and his family decided to move to the United States to pursue his dream. The move necessitated a significant adjustment for Krystoff from his French educational background; however, his aptitude for language and hunger for success facilitated a smooth transition.
Now fluent in 5 languages (French, English, Kreyol, Spanish, and conversational German), Krystoff graduated from high school in South Florida. He continued on to earn a Bachelor’s Degree in International Business and Marketing from Florida International University. After working briefly for a mobile banking company, Krystoff made the decision that he never again wanted to be just another number in the corporate world. He decided to enroll in a rigorous management training program to develop the necessary skill sets to become a successful entrepreneur. Equipped with a strong business foundation, Krystoff opened his first company, The Carvonis Group, representing one of the largest mobility companies in the nation. He is passionate about seeing his team develop and working in a ‘people helping people’ business.
In his spare time, Krystoff enjoys traveling, visiting his family and friends in Haiti, playing sports, as well as spending time on the beach. He also loves trying new restaurants and exploring different cultures. Passionate and competitive to the core, Krystoff strives to expand The Carvonis Group to all 50 states. He plans to come full circle to accomplish his late father’s dream of him participating in the Olympic Games for Haiti. Your dream is my goal.
