New York's Ronald McDonald House recently announced that Michael N. Bapis has been deemed the chairman of its Greek division.
Bapis is the managing director and partner of the Bapis Group at HighTower. The Greek-American businessman is the second chairman that has held this position, after founder Niki Sideris' passing in 2011. Since her death, Archbishop Demetrios has served as the honorary chairman.

Of his post, Bapis stated: "I am truly honored and privileged to assume the role as Chairman of the Ronald McDonald House New York Greek Division...I look forward to supporting the charitable mission of such a special place and working with the entire Ronald McDonald House community".
Ronald McDonald House New York President and CEO William T. Sullivan stated of the newly appointed position, "We are honored to have Mr. Bapis' leadership at the head of our Greek Division...His insight as both a distinguished leader in the Greek community as well as a volunteer with our organization is what we believe will be most beneficial to the growth and development of the Greek Division. We are grateful to him for making this commitment by which he's bringing his heart, spirit and extraordinary knowledge to the Ronald McDonald House."

Bapis is a large supporter of causes, that include the Archangel Michael Greek Orthodox Church's Vision Committee and Leadership 100 Board and Audit Committee.
