Chicago, IL – The PanHellenic Scholarship Foundation is happy to announce the appointment of Angelo Bravos, Ph.D., as its Interim Executive Director. Angelo will assume the role that was made available by Yanni Valsamas’ appointment to the Board of Directors and departure from the Executive Director position, effective January 1, 2017. Valsamas has accepted a new position as Chief Operating Officer of Autoagent, a property tax software company.


Board Chairman Robert Buhler said, “We are very pleased to announce Angelo’s appointment and are excited to welcome him to the PanHellenic family. Angelo is committed to the mission of the Foundation, and has a breadth of experience in philanthropy and education. We are very fortunate and thrilled to have him as a part of the Foundation. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Anastasia Svigos, member of our Board of Directors, for her dedication and time spent on our search for an interim executive director. Thank you also to John Manos, Treasurer of the Foundation, and Tom Sotos, Secretary, for their involvement in efficiently interviewing and reviewing candidates, and for their assistance in bringing Dr. Bravos on board.”

He comes to us with many ideas and an entirely new perspective, and I am looking forward to working with him in my new role as a Board Member.”


“I am very excited to join the PanHellenic Scholarship Foundation, an organization that is dedicated to promoting my two passions, Education and Hellenism,” Dr. Bravos remarked. “I look forward to working with Mr. Buhler, the Board, the staff and the generous partners and donors in order to preserve and advance the wonderful legacy that the late Mr. Chris Tomaras started.”
