Manny has been in the shipping industry his entire life and has extensive experience in the Caribbean and Latin American markets. He began his career at an early age in 1975 working for Transconex, which at the time was the largest LCL carrier from the USA to the Caribbean and Latin America. He began as sales representative and eventually became its Vice President.

Manny served in the capacity of President from its inception and by 2005 Caribtrans had become the largest, most respected NVOCC serving the Caribbean markets. With his partner Luis wanting to retire, the decision was reached to sell the company to Tropical Shipping in April of2008. Manny remained on-board as its President until April of 2012 when they parted ways due to differences in management styles. He rode out his non-compete contract, which ended in April of 2017. Shortly after which, he joined CARIBCONEX as partner and CEO. He is well liked and respected by all that have dealt with him throughout the years because of his down to earth demeanor and his honest approach to dealing with people. Customers, employees, agents and industry piers alike all have a fond respect for Manny and his ability to get things done right. Manny is excited to be back at work and tackling the task of taking CARIBCONEX to a whole new level working side by side with his old team mates and long time friends.

Through his accomplishments he was again promoted in 1997, this time to Sales Manager. A few years later in 2001, he was once again promoted to Vice President of Sales and Marketing, a position he held and was very successful at until parting ways in 2014. Ivan was a key player and instrumental to the growth and success of the company. After riding out a non-compete contract, he founded CARIBCONEX. Ivan is known for providing the very best customer service and for being a loyal friend to everybody that he has dealt with over the years. Now that he is reunited with his old management team and friends, together they will grow CARIBCONEX into a force to be reckoned with. Today he still divides his time between St. Maarten and Miami.
