Theofanis Economidis of Los Altos, California, a member of Leadership 100, was honored for his extraordinary leadership and dedication by the Metropolis of San Francisco on March 2, 2013 at an inaugural Gala event to celebrate the ministries of the Metropolis. In presenting him with The Metropolis Award, His Eminence Metropolitan Gerasimos of San Francisco cited his contributions to the Metropolis, Archdiocese and Ecumenical Patriarchate.

The inaugural event, designed to offer valuable insight into ministries and plans for growth of the Metropolis, was co-chaired by George Marcus and Jeannie Ranglas, both members of Leadership 100. The program was co-hosted by Jenni Pulos, Bravo! TV star and renowned musician Chris Spheeris, and featured musical performances by Fr. John Bakas, Dean of Saint Sophia Cathedral in Los Angeles, operatic soprano Michele Patzakis and operatic baritone Constantine Pappas.

Leadership 100 Chairman Emeritus Constantine G. Caras conveyed the “deep appreciation and acknowledgement for the example of leadership in philanthropic service both here and abroad” by Economidis in a letter from Charles H. Cotros, Leadership 100 Chairman.

In serving the Metropolis for more than 30 years, Economidis has held the position of Vice President for the last 20 years and oversees the management of Saint Nicholas Ranch and Retreat Center. As an Archon of the Order of Saint Andrew, he has been a champion of religious freedom for the Ecumenical Patriarchate and serves as a member of the Archon National Council and as Metropolis Regional Archon Commander. He is a member of the Archdiocesan Council and of its Executive Committee. Economidis is the recipient of numerous awards, including the Ellis Island Medal of Honor and the Cross of Axum from the Patriarch of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church.
