Stavros Niarchos | Greek Benefactor

Stavros Niarchos [1909 – 1996] was a billionaire Greek shipping entrepreneur and great benefactor. Exploiting the Suez Crisis and the increasing demand for oil of his time, he became a giant in global petroleum shipping. He left half his 22 billion dollars fortune to a charitable trust to be established in his name, with the Stavros Niarchos Foundation still being one of the most prestigious foundations in Greece.
