George S. Tsandikos, Chairman of Leadership 100, in remarking on the honor, said that Anton was “a philanthropic pioneer and exemplary leader who was part of a small, dedicated group of dedicated Churchmen who had worked with Archbishop Iakovos of Blessed Memory to create the Archbishop Iakovos Leadership 100 Endowment Fund, now one of the preeminent charitable membership organizations in the nation.”

Among Anton’s long list of accomplishments are his service to the Annunciation Cathedral in Boston, Holy Trinity Church in Lowell and the Archdiocesan Council, the ruling body of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese, as well as to various other prestigious national committees and organizations. He is also an Archon of the Ecumenical Patriarchate.
