The American Hellenic Institute (AHI) honored Peter J. Pappas, a member of the Executive Committee of Leadership 100 and Nicolas Bornozis, a distinguished member of Leadership 100, for career achievements and contributions to the Greek American Community, at its 41st Anniversary Hellenic Heritage Achievement and Public Service Awards Dinner on March 5, 2016 at the Capitol Hilton in Washington, D.C.

AHI President Nick Larigakis and AHI Foundation President Dr. Spiro Spireas presided at the event at which Pappas, Chairman of the Board of P.J.M. Holding Corp., received the AHI Hellenic Heritage Achievement Award in recognition of his entrepreneurial, philanthropic endeavors and fidelity to Hellenic causes and Bornozis, Founder, President/CEO of Capital Link, received the AHI Hellenic Heritage National Public Service Award for outstanding achievements fostering strong economic ties with the Hellenic world.

Pappas recalled his humble origins growing up in New York City along with his uncertainty as to what career path to follow but that after attending New York University, still uncertain, as time went on “things do fold out in front of you.” His company is one of the largest HVAC and mechanical contracting firms in the United States. He commended AHI Founder Gene Rossides and President Nick Larigakis for moving AHI along into its current prominence as an advocate of Hellenic causes and encouraged the young people in attendance to believe that they have a chance and that they can have a dream and carry it out in life.

Bornozis recalled his beginnings in the capital markets and international finance industry, eventually becoming CEO of a French bank in the United States. He started Capital Link, a leader in investor relations for the shipping industry, closed-end funds and companies seeking access to the U.S. and European financial markets, twenty years ago. Capital Link organizes 12 large-scale investment conferences annually in Athens, New York, London and Shanghai, attracting as many as 1,000 delegates and spurring investment and business opportunities in Greece.
