John Thomas Financial CEO Thomas Belesis Named in Greek America Magazine's 25 Most Intriguing People

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - March 29, 2011) - Thomas Belesis, CEO of John Thomas Financial, is featured in the latest issue of Greek America Magazine as one of its 25 Most Intriguing People of 2010. The bi-monthly national publication highlighted Mr. Belesis for "bringing dignity back to Wall Street."

Mr. Belesis was selected for the leadership he has shown in the financial industry. Having rapidly grown his business from a small brokerage firm with two employees to a full-service investment house, occupying 50,000 feet of space across from the New York Stock Exchange, Belesis is noted for his successful endeavors and his vision to "restore the dignity to Wall Street and remind the world that in its original and purest form, it was Wall Street that built America."

"Entrepreneurs like Thomas Belesis are the very backbone of our nation. Like our Greek immigrant ancestors who built this nation with their ingenuity, tenacity and resilience, Tom carries those same qualities as he attempts to restore dignity to Wall Street," said Founder and Publisher of Greek America Magazine and Founder of the Greek America Foundation Gregory Pappas.

Greek America Magazine's 25 Most Intriguing People is a yearly compilation of Greek Americans that positively contribute to the community through arts and science, business, education, public service and philanthropy.

Mr. Belesis is recognized among his well-regarded Greek American peers including Dean Metropolis (The Brand King), Zach Galifianakis (Hollywood's New "It" Guy), Constantine Maroulis (The Greek Idol), Bishop Demetrios of Mokissos (Building Bridges of Understanding), and Arianna Huffington (Greek America's Woman of the Year).

The feature can be found in the January/February issue of Greek America Magazine or on the JTF Blog, the official company blog of John Thomas Financial.
