found fatherhood to be one of his greatest accomplishments and finds immense joy in
watching his children grow. He is an active member of his community, hosting weekly
basketball games that he and his neighbors play in, shooting not hoops, but also the
breeze. His love of community also resulted in The Litvak Team’s contribution of 400
toys and $20,000 donated to charities over the years. Eugene is excited and proud to
be part of the team, servicing over 16,000 clients and $14B in sales... and growing!
