MICHAEL N. BAPIS APPOINTED AS CHAIRMAN

OF THE RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE NEW YORK GREEK DIVISION

 

 

New York, May 1, 2014 – Ronald McDonald House New York today announced that Michael N. Bapis, partner and managing director of the Bapis Group at HighTower, has been named as chairman of the organization’s Greek Division. Mr. Bapis will be the Division’s second chairman following the passing of Founder Niki Sideris in 2011. Greek Archbishop Demetrios held the position as honorary chairman in the interim.

 

As Chairman, Mr. Bapis will begin the formation of an executive committee that will provide the Greek Division with new strategic goals in the fulfillment of its mission. In existence for more than 30 years, the Greek Division has helped to provide a support system for families from Greece and Cyprus seeking treatment for pediatric cancer while in New York City. The support of the local Greek community within the tri-state area has been an integral part of the Division’s ability to provide the financial resources, as well as awareness of the devastating effects of cancer.

 

“I am truly honored and privileged to assume the role as Chairman of the Ronald McDonald House New York Greek Division,” said Mr. Bapis. “I look forward to supporting the charitable mission of such a special place and working with the entire Ronald McDonald House community.”

 

“We are honored to have Mr. Bapis’ leadership at the head of our Greek Division,” said William T. Sullivan, president & CEO of Ronald McDonald House New York. “His insight as both a distinguished leader in the Greek community as well as a volunteer with our organization is what we believe will be most beneficial to the growth and development of the Greek Division. We are grateful to him for making this commitment by which he’s bringing his heart, spirit and extraordinary knowledge to the Ronald McDonald House.”

 

With more than 15 years of experience in wealth management and private banking, Mr. Bapis is an industry expert in wealth preservation and strategic investment management. In addition to Ronald McDonald House New York, he also devotes his time to a number of causes including serving on the Leadership 100 Board and Audit Committee, and the Archangel Michael Greek Orthodox Church’s Vision Committee. Mr. Bapis earned a B.A. in Management and an M.B.A. from the University of Utah.
