On March, businessman and active member of the Greek-American Community, George J. Tsunis, was officially confirmed by the United States Senate as the next Ambassador of the United States to Greece.

Mr. Tsunis had been long-regarded as an easy decision by members of the U.S. Senate for this ambassadorial position due to his extensive ties to the upper echelons of the American business community but his, in-depth and deeply personal convictions held about Greek-American bilateral relations.
