Sandor Celebrating 50 Years

Aug 29, 2013

From its humble beginnings in 1963, when CEO Sidney Eskenazi founded the company to support the growth and development of Indiana shopping centers, Sandor has emerged as a leader in the real estate industry.

“Our portfolio includes more than 8 million square feet of commercial retail property,” said Ron West, COO of Sandor. “In the last five years, we have acquired more than $130 million of property.”

When West joined the firm in 2008, Sandor was starting to focus less on ground-up development and more on the acquisition of undeveloped land, existing centers, and single-tenant assets. The privately held company now owns and manages strip centers in 25 states.

“Mr. Eskenazi built this family-owned business from the ground up,” added West. Sidney Eskenazi’s son, David Eskenazi, currently serves as president of the Indianapolis division, while his nephew, Jay Stein, serves as president of the Scottsdale, Arizona division.
