Eugenides assigned to his sister, Marianthi Simou (1895-1981), the execution of the terms of his will and the management of the Foundation’s fortune. She made it her life’s purpose to fulfil her brother’s will.
Following the death of Marianthi Simou, the directorship and administration of the Eugenides Foundation was carried out by a three-member committee, in which the Rector of NTUA participates ex officio. The first president of the Management Committee of the Eugenides Foundation was her valued associate, Nikolaos Vernikos-Eugenides (1920-2000).
The work of NikolaosVernikos-Eugenides continues, renewed and expanded today under the leadership of Leonidas Dimitriades-Eugenides, president of the Foundation since 2000.
