Hellenic Community of Monaco welcomes in new leadership during Vasilopita celebration

Earlier this month, more than 200 members and friends of the Hellenic Community of Monaco gathered at the Yacht Club de Monaco to welcome in the association’s new Board of Directors and to celebrate Vasilopita.  

Monaco’s Greek community united at the central venue on Sunday 14th January to witness a number of important transitions within the club’s structure.  

Firstly, Sophia Vaharis-Tsouvelekakis formally concluded her second term as President, receiving a warm round of applause for her efforts, and handed the baton on to Ekaterini Lanara, a fellow businesswoman who has lived in the Principality of Monaco for more than 15 years.  

Vaharis-Tsouvelekakis’ final official task in her capacity as President was to honour certain members of the community for their efforts over the last year. These included: Michael Seliniotakis for his humanitarian efforts; John Christodoulou for his philanthropic endeavours; George Vafiadis for his contributions to yacht design; and the island of Kastellorizo and its residents for their cultural and societal contributions. 

The Hellenic Community of Monaco’s new Board of Directors was also presented at the event. Grigorios Stassinopoulos, Gerasimos Marinis and Dimitrios Anastasakos will serve as Vice-Presidents while Anastasakos will hold a secondary role as Treasurer alongside Dr. Panagiotis Kyriazis. Vasileios Kasimatis is taking on the position of Secretary, Athanasios Kourniotis will manage the Public Relations responsibilities of the community and Leonidas Kampanis will serve as Event Manager.
