9 Savas Er Diego Pacheco Savas serves on the Executive Board and has been an active member of the Annual Dinner Committee for several years. He, along with fellow board member Adam Moschin, co- chaired the Annual Dinner Committee in 2016. How old were you when you landed your first job and what was it? I was 14 years old when I started working as an electrician's assistant. I've always been a go-getter. If you could have dinner with anyone, who would it be and why? I would have said Bill Clinton, but I've already had dinner with him! So definitely Roger Federer, a famous tennis player. He's so involved with a number of charities and he really makes an effort to give back to the community. Plus, my son is a huge fan of his. Why are you involved with HEEF? It's a great way to give back, not only for cancer research but also for real estate. I'm involved in real estate so I really love HEEF's two pronged mission and the crossover there. What is your vision for HEEF? I see HEEF doing even bigger things within the next 5 years. The things HEEF is doing now are big but I think they will do it on an even grander scale. Savas' secret: I have an accent. Diego serves on the Associate Board. He, along with fellow board member Grace Lewin, leads the foundation's Team Eisenberg efforts. What motivates you? I definitely find my motivation through my friends and family. What is your favorite travel accessory? Friends. Traveling with the people I'm closest with always leads to great memories, so they would have to be my favorite accessory. If you could have dinner with anyone, who would it be and why? Robert. A. M. Stern. He's my favorite architect. What is your vision for HEEF? HEEF is going to continue to do great things in the GI cancer research field such as putting researchers and doctors closer to finding a cure. They're already doing an incredible job of that but I envision HEEF making even larger steps towards a cure. Diego's Secret: I know all the lyrics to "The Eminem Show" album.
