Alexi Giannoulias gains wisdom
August 31st, 2017
With the birth of his second child, Alexi Giannoulias has found wisdom.
He and wife Jo are proud parents of Sophia Katerina. “Everyone’s healthy,” Giannoulias said in a short note.
The name has meaning. Sophia is the Greek word for “wisdom” and Katerina is the name of Giannoulias’s grandmother, who lives in Crete.
The couple’s oldest child is 2-year-old Anna Elise, named after Giannoulias’s mom and Jo’s sister.
Giannoulias is a senior director at Bank of New York Mellon Corp. in Chicago, a former state treasurer and a U.S. Senate candidate. His wife’s family owns Terlato Wines International.
