Pavlo was born and raised in Vineland, NJ to Greek immigrant parents Kosta and Karmen (Kiritsi). In 2002 he married Eleni Tikos and together they have two children; Karmen and Kosta. Pavlo and his family reside in the Landing section of Roxbury Township, NJ.
As a first generation Greek, Pavlo holds dear his Hellenic Heritage. He maintained the fluency of the Greek language from his younger years through adulthood. He participated in advanced Hellenic dance group events as a team lead and was instrumental in teaching dance for youth groups in his home community of Saint Anthony. He shares a passion for the Hellenic Culture along with his wife, who was raised in Thessaloniki Greece. They have passed on their love of the Orthodox Faith and Greek Heritage to their children, as both are currently active participants in Saint Andrew’s junior fellowship programs and Hellenic After School program.
He is a graduate of Rutgers University, with a BS in Electrical Engineering and MBA in Finance. He moved to Morris County in 1997 to work as a Hardware Design Engineer at Intel (formerly Dialogic) in Parsippany. Most recently, he managed US Embassy and Military construction projects and is currently an IT Project Manager at Hewlett Packard Enterprise.
In his spare time he enjoys; watching movies (Star Wars and Marvel) with his family, coaching and playing soccer, and is a loyal Eagles fan. His hobbies include building computers and home entertainment systems.
Pavlo is solutions oriented and is known for his loyalty, dedication, leadership skills and humility. His ability to work in a team at various levels cultivating mutual respect with his peers will be a key element in his contribution to the community.
He looks forward to the challenges and opportunities that will come with volunteering his time and talents to our growing parish.
