Drawing from his own experience as an accomplished businessman, entrepreneur, restaurateur and publisher, Roy has developed a unique insight in the dynamics of business and mastered the arts of networking, negotiation and bridge building, which are the key ingredients of success.
Born in Syria, Roy moved to the United States at the age of 18 without any money and unable to speak a word of English. Armed with only motivation and grand dreams, his hard work and determination allowed him to become his own first success story. What began as a “first job” in the mailroom of an insurance agency has grown into a life of entrepreneurial passion.
In addition to being a partner and business analyst at Stat AV, Roy is the managing partner of the Human Capital Group where he provides clients with guidance to help them unleash hidden potential, eliminate roadblocks and capitalize on unique talents, maximizing personal and professional success.
Roy founded the Human Capital Group in 2003. His mission has always been to help executives and entrepreneurs through creating customized strategies and corporate training plans that are roadmaps to building a life and career that they love.
Roy also owned The Haberdasher, a custom clothing company which he sold profitably in 2001. As well, he opened an award winning Middle Eastern restaurant, Leila in 2004, followed by L’Opera in 2006.
Extremely committed to his community, Roy has served on committees, organizations and charities like Discover the Palm Beaches, Downtown Development Authority–West Palm Beach, International Coach Federation, Best Buddies Palm Beach, and The Palm Beach Chamber, amongst many others.
Roy’s interests and hobbies include playing soccer, biking, watching movies, dining out, and spending time with his daughter. He enjoys getting R&R at luxury hotels too. While many travel destinations piqued his interest, he fell in love with Hawaii the first time he visited, and has been back multiple times.
His interest in Stat AV began after meeting with the partners, whom he believes are trailblazers. His favorite concert is Stairway to Heaven, which he watched live at the Kennedy Center.
