John Catsimatidis is the President & CEO of the Red Apple Group, a privately held company valued between $5 - 6 billion, with holdings in energy, refining, real estate, media, and supermarkets, and headquartered in New York City.
John and his family came to America from Greece when he was only 6 months old. The values his parents instilled in him - honor the family name, work hard, find mentors - led him to become one of the richest men in America. He is committed to civic duty and philanthropy.
Following a close but unsuccessful run for New York City Mayor in 2013, Catsimatidis launched The Cats Roundtable radio program in 2014. The one-hour Sunday morning show features a series of short, one-on-one interviews with some of the biggest names in politics, government, business, finance, health & science, and more.
John’s interview style is about finding the truth -- the balance in every story. His honest and straightforward approach allows his guests to relax and deliver candid answers that set the headlines for the next day.
Most recently, John launched Red Apple Media and acquired 77 WABC-AM Radio, New York.
