Zachos guided Currier, SNHU to today's prominence
Attorney Bradford E. Cook, who has worked with Zachos for 42 years, said Zachos has never talked much about those days. He’s seen the photograph of Zachos carrying Katzenbach’s bags and, hanging on Zachos’ office wall, is a photograph of Zachos, a lifelong Republican, with Democrat LBJ.
“I have a great life,” said Zachos, who has practiced law with Sheehan Phinney Bass + Green since 1957. Eventually, his practice focused on banking, estate planning and the corporate world. But education and the arts ultimately would play a major role in his life.
He quickly became a lover of the arts and eventually the driving force behind three fund-raising campaigns, totaling about $20 million, and the $20 million-plus expansion of the Currier Museum of Art, making it into a museum of international renown.
Zachos is among a handful of New Hampshire residents to be honored with this year’s Granite State Legacy Awards, presented by the New Hampshire Union Leader and sponsored by Centrix Bank.
