In 2006, fresh out of college, Alovis started The Stella Group that owns a portfolio of companies.

Headquartered in Garden City, New York, The Stella Group has transformed from a company with almost no capital into one of the fastest growing multi-industry companies in the country, earning placement in the coveted Inc. 5000, Internet Retailers Top 1000, Long Island Business News’ 40 under 40 and a finalist in the New York Enterprise Small Business Awards.

Alovis himself has since been featured in top-tier media outlets including Forbes, The Wall Street Journal, Fox Business Network, Inc. Magazine, The New York Observer and Newsday.

  • InTouchMD
  • MagazineDiscountCenter.com (sold to Time Inc. In 2016)
  • LensDirect.com
  • 1-888-GO-ANSWER!

Alovis’ success with The Stella Group has allowed him to bring the same entrepreneurial energy to his fundraising committee, The Silver Lining Society Children's Cancer. This New York based fundraising committee, which Alovis co-founded in 2006, raises money for Hope & Heroes Pediatric Cancer Fund based out of Columbia University Medical Center and to date has raised nearly half a million dollars since inception.
