The 2012 Humanitarian of the Year Award
The honoree of this year is John Catsimatidis, a New Yorker known as much for his success in business as his commitment to bettering the city he arrived in as a child with no money or knowledge of English. An entrepreneur and builder of iconic New York businesses such as Gristedes and Red Apple Supermarkets, Mr. Catsimatidis is a particularly fitting recipient at a time when the agency is focused, as never before, on innovating for the future.
Seeing beyond disability.
