Alex Xakoustis is the owner of Italkraft, a firm specializing in customizable kitchens, baths, closets and cabinetry. Mr. Xakoustis started the company in 2010 in Miami, and over the past few years has expanded to include showrooms in New York (one opened in 2019 in Manhattan’s Flatiron District); Miami (Doral), Wynwood, Aventura, and Fort Lauderdale in Florida, Washington, D.C.; Austin, Texas; Los Angeles; Panama and Italy.

Mr. Xakoustis, 50, who was born and raised in Greece—his family has long roots in the stone business, dating back to the 19th century—came to the U.S. in 1988 to study at Boston University and never left.
