Juan Vicente Carvajal is managing director of the Central America region and also a managing partner. As a board-certified attorney in Costa Rica, Juan Vicente has been representing players for over 7 years and has established himself as one of the most respected agents in Central America. Having negotiated contracts for players throughout Costa Rica and the entire region, he brings a wealth of experience to Agrinzonis. All of his clients boast about the fact that Juan Vicente has not only done a tremendous job for them, but that they also view him as a friend and mentor.
Carvajal has been a litigating attorney since 2006. From 2009 to 2012, he was on the board of directors at Liga Deportiva Alajuelense, one of the largest clubs in Costa Rica and the country’s second most successful of all time in terms of titles. His experiences as part of the leadership for one of Costa Rica’s top clubs were transformational, leading him to take his first steps to becoming an agent. Supported by a friend, he began his career in the world of player representation in 2013 with a firm desire to work basing his efforts on four fundamental pillars: transparency, honesty, trust and sincerity.
“I did not want to be just another agent. I wanted to be different, to achieve a personal bond with clients, not just professional. I wanted to make a difference and help soccer players in a comprehensive way, because I think if they are better people, they will also be better players.”
In 2014, he brokered the most expensive transfer of a defender in MLS history with the move of Giancarlo González from Columbus Crew to Palermo in Serie A. As additional experiences continued to mark his professional life, Juan Vicente came to the conclusion that he is doing his life work, which has led him to feel great personal and professional satisfaction. He is currently registered as an official intermediary with the federations of Costa Rica, the United States, Spain and Japan.
Since 2000, he has also been the Vice President and a member of the board of directors at Sociedad Educativa Palmareña, which runs one of the top private secondary schools in Costa Rica. Juan Vicente is fluent in both Spanish and English.
