Mr. and Mrs. Nick and Marina Letsios

Born in Athens, Greece, Nikolaos immigrated to the United States in 1972 and has since built a successful life and career in various fields. After attending Transfiguration Greek Orthodox Grade School and graduating from Saint Demetrios High School, Nikolaos went on to study at Saint John’s University.

Nikolaos married Marina Lagos/Letsios at Saint Nicholas Church, Bayside, in 1995, and together they have two children, Eleftherios and Panayotis. Both children attended Saint Nicholas Greek Orthodox grade school. Eleftherios, born in 1998, graduated from the High School of Bronx Science and earned a bachelor’s degree from Hunter College. He will be attending law school in the fall of 2023. Panayotis, born in 2000, graduated from Saint Demetrios of Astoria high school and attended Queens College before joining the family business at Kia of Huntington. The family is deeply connected to their Greek Orthodox roots, with membership at both Holy Cross Greek Orthodox Church in Whitestone, NY, and Dormition of the Virgin Mary Greek Orthodox Church of the Hamptons.

Nikolaos began working in automotive dealerships in 1991 and has since held ownership in several dealerships, including Cox Nissan, Bronx Suzuki, Mayors Saab, City Mitsubishi, and Long Island City VW. Currently, Nikolaos serves as the Director of Operations at Kia of Huntington, a family-owned dealership operated by his wife, Marina.

In addition to his work in the automotive industry, Nikolaos and Marina are partners in the “Hellenic Daily News” digital newspaper and “Hellenic Golden Directory.” They are also involved in real estate and other businesses, such as the Planet Health co-packing food plant in Port Jervis, NY.

Always eager to give back to the community, Nikolaos and Marina actively support numerous charities, including Prince’s Trust International, Long Island Cares Inc., St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Long Island, and Mothers Against Drunk Driving. They also sponsor Blue Dream and all of its causes. In recognition of these charitable efforts, Kia of Huntington was awarded the “School of Athens Humanitarian Award” by Father Alexander Karloutsos.

With a deep commitment to family, community, and professional endeavors, Nikolaos and Marina continue to make a lasting impact in both their personal and professional lives.
