Andrew Manatos

Andy Manatos (born 1944) was a former Assistant Secretary of Commerce in the administration of President Jimmy Carter.[1] He was the youngest sub-cabinet official in the administration and led the effort that moved the Foreign Commercial Service from the State Department to the Commerce Department. Prior to that, Manatos served as a Committee Staff Director in the Senate and aide to former Senators Thomas Eagleton and Gale McGee.

In 1981, Andy and his father, Mike Manatos, former White House Assistant for Senate Liaison to Presidents Kennedy and Johnson, formed the public policy firm, Manatos and Manatos.[1] Andy currently serves as president of the firm, which he operates with his eldest son, Mike Manatos. Clients of Manatos and Manatos have included Fortune 500 Companies, foreign countries, religious leaders and the Smithsonian Institution. He was chosen as one of Washington's most powerful private sector people by Regardies Magazine.

Much of Manatos' pro bono work has benefited the Greek American community in the United States. He created and has maintained for 22 years an annual meeting of that community with the President of the United States. He serves on the board of several Hellenic organizations. He was presented the highest recognition from the Archbishop of America, the St. Paul medal, and was also appointed to the Order of St. Andrew by the Ecumenical Patriarch, the spiritual leader of 300 million Orthodox Christians worldwide.

Manatos created and serves on the board of the THEA Foundation and hosts an annual dinner with the former President to raise money for the foundation's work.

His family comes from the island of Crete, Greece.
