Fritzgerald Charpentier

Since starting his first company 20 years ago, Fritzgerald has managed a variety of other start-ups ranging from fitness and wellness to lifestyle and fashion brands. He moved to Brooklyn from Haiti in 1995 and immediately discovered a passion for fitness. It was then he launched his first business as a personal trainer: Train_4_Life.


His charismatic personality and favorable results allowed him to expand his customer base and attract high-profile clients that worked in the finance industry. These clients would introduce Fitzgerald to ForEx trading, leading to another newfound passion in the form of finance and economics. Fitzgerald received his bachelor's degree in international finance and economics from Brooklyn College. 


He started working as a market trend follower and analyst while maintaining his personal trainer business, and held positions at established financial organizations like Garden State Security Group and M.D. Sass. Along the way, he also had the pleasure of working with David Yurman, Honda and BMW.


Fritzgerald’s experience could have led him down any number of career paths, but as a serial entrepreneur, he found his niche in launching new companies, promoting brands and hosting events to benefit charities near and dear to his heart. The launch of Charp Consulting has allowed Fritzgerald to thrive in a role that combines his passions with his expertise.
