Emmanuel A. Baptiste

Emmanuel A. Baptiste's journey began in New York City where he owned and operated a medallion cab. The profitability and network he created in that business lead him to open Supreme Legacy Transports, a full-service transportation company. His fleet accounts included the Waldorf Astoria, Starwood Properties, SAP, UBS, JLL, Goldman Sachs, Health Tech Associates, The National Football Association, The National Basketball Players Association, Estiatorio Milos, and Viacom. The genuine relationships Emmanuel built with his clients along with his affinity for real estate, led him to establish Sterling Park Capital. This company focuses on residential and commercial property lending, in urban cities. Sterling Park Properties, a subsidiary of Sterling Park Capital acquires and develops high end, mixed-use, and luxury properties across the US. Emmanuel is also a philanthropist. He co-founded Worldwide Psychos in 2013, which has grown globally. The charitable group boasts members from New York City, Long Island, Florida, California, Arizona, Canada, Europe, and Egypt. The primary goal of the foundation is to allocate human and capital resources to countries that face disasters and also inspire others to give back whenever the opportunity arises. As a native of Trinidad and Tobago Emmanuel now resides in Atlanta, GA with his lovely wife Makaylla and his three wonderful children.
