Glad Kurian, Vice President with Morgan Stanley in Melbourne, was recognized recently as an Award Nominee at the Orlando Mayor’s Neighborhood Summit.

Kurian has been a champion for the City of Orlando and the Central Florida Association of Physicians from the Indian Subcontinent, Inc. (C.A.P.I.), formerly known as Association of Physicians & Dentists from South Asia (A.P.D.S.A.) and Doctors of South Asia (D.O.S.A), respectively.  He has volunteered his time and leadership for more than 15 years, building the association’s membership to over 500 physicians.

The City of Orlando values the contributions of non-profit and charitable organizations that help build a stronger community.  To recognize these organizations and their volunteers who have a significant impact on the well-being of our community, Mayor Buddy Dyer created the Community Builder Award.
