J. Claudio Stivelman
President & CEO
With 38 years of success as an entrepreneurial businessman in Latin America and the United States, real estate developer Claudio Stivelman had the foresight to invest along the Northern coast of Miami-Dade County. In 2002, Stivelman embraced a unique opportunity by purchasing valuable land on Thunder Alley in the heart of Aventura. Stivelman’s portfolio includes desirable addresses including: Artech, a $210-million project designed by Carlos Ott, now viewed as an architectural landmark and Uptown Marina Lofts, the city’s first waterfront loft community to include a marina and state of the art technology. Prior to becoming one of the founders of S2 Development, Claudio Stivelman founded Planinvest Inc. and established a joint venture with Coscan Homes to develop Ocean Point Resort and Beach Club on Sunny Isles Beach, a luxurious oceanfront 27-story, 166-unit condo-hotel. This proved to be a great success, and gave Miami its first county-approved condo hotel.
While living in his native country of Brazil, Stivelman established a development and construction company and built more than 15 multi-family residential buildings in Rio’s most luxurious areas.
Established, Stivelman became the President of Brazil’s Consumer Credit Association (ADECIF), lobbying directly with government officials for the industry, and President of the country’s largest and most prominent young businessmen’s association, Grupo De Intercambio Empresarial (G.I.E.).
Stivelman, an American citizen, is an active member of the Brazilian-American Chamber of Commerce of Florida and he is on the board of the Shul of Bal Harbor, and is a member of the Executive Committee and the Board of the Aventura Marketing Council. He was also nominated as an honorary member of the Board of Directors of the Developers and Builders Alliance.
