What she said: ‘We’re very young, so I would say, ‘Young Pitbulls,’ Bueckers said of her team’s identity. ‘They’re young, but I’m competitive, and that’s spread across the whole team.

TNH’s 50 Wealthiest Greeks in America 2019 List

Welcome to The National Herald’s Annual 50 Wealthiest Greeks in America List! It is my honor and privilege to spearhead this project for the first time this year. As such, I would like to say, at the risk of sounding cliche’ and unprofound, how incredibly proud I am to be a Greek-American with immigrant parents. Having read countless stories about the truly deserving individuals on our list, I can’t help but feel a renewed admiration for our people, our culture, our perseverance and our work ethic.

Americans love rankings and lists ‘ and Greek-Americans are no different. As such, this annual insert is year after year our most read special issue of all. However, I have come to find that the most popular part about it, the actual numbered rankings, is actually the least important. Although countless hours were spent researching and contacting the various individuals featured on our list, we are aware that this list is not all encompassing (some individuals do not like to be in the public eye) and that the net worth of the individuals are approximations (i.e., the stock market’s daily fluctuations may cause some people’s net worth to change minute by minute). This is a ‘problem’ that is not unique to The National Herald but also to Forbes, for example, which is widely regarded as the ‘gold standard’ of such rankings.
