Christopher Carbonell grew up in the Insurance Industry since migrating from the Philippines at a tender age of 5. His father, Dr. Mars A Carbonell, owned a General Agency in Queens, NY. Chris became a broker of this agency and worked there for 6 years while attending Baruch College. He then graduated in 1988 and joined the Carbonell Agency full time from 1988-1995.
In 1995, Chris left the agency to embark and try his skills on a different venue. He became a Director of Admissions for the Taylor Business Institute, Sanford Brown and eventually Briarcliffe College. Chris was given the prestigious “Best of the Best” award with CEC (Career Ed Corp) 2004 and eventually opened up a satellite school for him located in Long Island City, Queens.
In 2009, Chris made the decision to stay home to take care of his wife who, sadly, later passed.
In 2014, he realized what his true passion was; giving from the heart to fruitfully and honestly help those in need. This lead him back into the insurance industry.
Chris joined Fortis Lux Financial in February of 2019, where he will continue to help others reach their financial goals.
Chris competed heavily in baseball, basketball, football and bowling. He excelled though in Martial Arts where he trained for 28 years. His discipline is Arnis/Escrima and Wu Shu – Northern Shaolin.
In his leisure time, Chris loves to stay home and cook for his son, Chris Jr and his fiancé Yvonne. Their beloved Husky/Sheppard Buddy loves his cooking also.
