Speaker: Andrew Tisch

Andrew Tisch

2011

Andrew is the co-chair of Loews Corporation, a publicly traded company led for decades by his father and uncle.  Together with his brother, Jim Tisch, and his first cousin, Jonathan Tisch, they oversee a holding company with over $16B in revenues, involved in hotels, real estate, insurance, natural gas, pipelines and oil & gas exploration.  As for the movie chain that originally bore the company name, it was sold in 1985.

Like his brother and cousin, he has been involved with the company his entire career.  In the 1980’s, he was President of the Bulova Watch Company which Loews acquired in 1979 and sold in 2007.  In the 1990’s, he served as the chief executive officer of Lorillard.  Heading up a cigarette manufacturer during the tobacco wars of the 1990’s didn’t make for the easiest job.  Andrew was the unlucky member of the family who had to testify before Congress.

The Tisch family is involved with and has donated to a wide variety of causes over the years.  One of the biggest beneficiaries has been NYU.  It includes The Tisch School of the Arts and Tisch Hospital at NYU Medical Center.  Andrew is Vice-Chairman of the Board of Cornell University, Chairman of the Economics Club of New York, and Co-chair of the City Park Foundation among his other public efforts.

Andrew is married to Ann Rubenstein Tisch, former journalist for NBC who founded The Young Women’s Leadership Network – focusing on single-sex public education and inner-city college guidance.  Andrew and Ann live in NYC.  He has four children.
