Apogee Opens Headquarters in London and Los Angeles to Oversee Expansion of its Programs in Europe and Asia and its Growing Media & Entertainment Activities

The Apogee Foundation, an international nonprofit dedicated to the development of human excellence in the performing arts, has opened offices in Soho and Beverly Hills to facilitate expansion of its programs throughout Eurasia and its increasing activities in the media and talent industries.



"We dedicate these headquarters and the work they enable us to carry out to the thousands of gifted artists who fulfill mankind's greatest vision of itself."

London and Los Angeles, June 27, 2006 (eMediaWire, PRWeb and PressBox) – The Apogee Foundation today announced the opening of its European Headquarters in England and its Pacific Headquarters in California. These offices will be located at CountyMark House, 50 Regent Street in London and 9595 Wilshire Boulevard in the Beverly Hills "Golden Triangle": in the heart of the world's media & entertainment capitals. For more information on these headquarters as well as Apogee's bureaus around the world, please refer to the Foundation's website: http://www.apogeefoundation.org/contact/index.php

Apogee President Kenneth Schneider will head the Foundation's Headquarters in Europe, and Apogee's Senior Vice President Camran N. Shafii will head the Foundation's Pacific Headquarters.

During its ten years of operations, Apogee has become a global force in developing and fulfilling the potential of the world's most talented performing artists. In fulfilling this mission, the Foundation has become increasingly involved in the motion picture, recording and talent industries. The Foundation will enjoy the use of these world class facilities free of charge thanks to its developing collaboration with Aurience Ltd., a leader in East-West media and culture. The opening of these two headquarters in the world's media & entertainment capitals thus enables Apogee to provide maximum benefits to its growing constituencies of benefactors and beneficiaries while sustaining its record of maximum financial efficiency.
