EASTERN CONSOLIDATED'S ERIC ANTON PRESENTS EXPLORING LEADERSHIP AWARD TO AMIR KORANGY, PUBLISHER OF THE REAL DEAL
New York, NY – December 3, 2009 – As Chairman of the Boy Scouts of America’s Greater New York Council Exploring Program, Eastern Consolidated Executive Managing Director Eric Anton presented Amir Korangy, Publisher of The Real Deal, with the organization’s prestigious ‘Exploring Leadership’ award at the 2009 Exploring Leadership Award Reception and fund raiser held at Yankee Stadium on November 17th.
The Council’s program, called Exploring, is a career educational program that matches high school students with mentors. The program is unique in that both boys and girls may participate and each has an opportunity to learn about careers at selected companies, governmental agencies and community-based organizations.
Mr. Anton learned of the program years ago, became deeply involved in corporate mentorship and has since even hired a student from the program to work at Eastern Consolidated.
“In discussing the program with Amir, he became totally intrigued by its potential to inspire youngsters. Subsequently, he did extensive due diligence by meeting with both students and adult leaders,” said Mr. Anton. “He has now totally embraced the initiative and I was delighted to recognize his commitment to the program by honoring him last month at Exploring’s annual event, which raised in excess of $75,000.”
Held at Yankee Stadium’s Legend Suites, Jean Afterman, Vice President and Assistant General Manager of the New York Yankees, a co-honoree, was also presented with an award by Yankee General Manager, Brian Cashman.
