With the blessings of His Eminence, Archbishop Demetrios of America, and on behalf of John Payiavlas, Chairman of the Archbishop Iakovos Leadership 100 Endowment Fund, Fr. Dimitrios Antokas, Leadership 100 Executive Director, announced the appointment of Paulette Poulos as the Director of Development, effective September 1, 2005.
The Executive Committee of Leadership 100 was unanimous in confirming the appointment. Chairman Payiavlas said the appointment brings a highly seasoned professional with substantive knowledge of the Church and the Greek American Community.
Ms. Poulos has been associated with the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese throughout her working career. She joined the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese in 1965 and has served in various capacities of increasing responsibilities, including Director of LOGOS and Associate Director for Stewardship Ministry (1972-1984). From 1984 to 1996, she served as Archbishop Iakovos' administrator and remained with him until his passing. She was the driving force in raising the necessary funds to complete the Archbishop Iakovos Library and Research Center in Brookline, Massachusetts. Her dedication and loyalty to the Church and to Archbishop Iakovos is widely recognized as helping him remain active in the ecclesiastical life until his passing in April, 2005.
The Archbishop Iakovos Leadership 100 Endowment Fund is an independent charitable fund whose mission is to preserve and perpetuate the Orthodox Christian faith and Hellenic heritage through support of activities that increase and strengthen the ministries of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America.
Since its inception in 1984, Leadership 100 has provided grants totaling more that $18 million.
