BIOGRAPHY

David N. Eskenazi received his B.A., summa cum laude, in 1987 from Tufts University, and his J.D. from the University of Michigan Law School in 1990. David has built on the legacy of philanthropy established by his parents, Sid and Lois, through his support to Indiana University.

David Eskenazi is president of Sandor Development's headquarters in Indianapolis. Since its founding in 1963 by David's father, Sidney Eskenazi, Sandor has grown into one of the nation's largest privately held shopping center proprietors. Previously, David worked as a real estate and corporate departments attorney at Rudnick & Wolfe, now DLA Piper Rudnick, in Chicago. He currently serves on multiple boards, including the Dean's Advisory Board for the Herron School of Art and Design, Eskenazi Health Foundation, and the Indianapolis Museum of Art. In addition to serving on the board of University High School, he is also a founding member of the Trailblazing Society, University High School's most generous group of donors. David is actively involved in the Eskenazi Family Foundation.

In appreciation for the exceptional care provided by Dr. Lawrence Einhorn to his mother, David and his sisters, Sandra and Dori, helped establish the Sidney and Lois Eskenazi Chair in Hematology-Oncology at the Indiana University School of Medicine. David and Julie have also been generous supporters of the IU Herron School of Art for many years. For his combined contributions to the university, IU Foundation inducted David Eskenazi to the Presidents Circle at the Benefactor level. In 2019, he was further recognized by the university and he received a Bicentennial Medal.
