Randy Benderson carries on his father Nathan’s legacy in the same fashion as his Dad did, with wit and optimism. Multiple communities have benefitted from Nathan Benderson’s contributions through charity and through helping develop communities, like Buffalo, NY, and Manatee County in Florida, all three of which remember his life and observe his passing over half a decade ago.
Benderson Development’s success is part and parcel of efforts put forth by two generations of Bendersons. It’s a continuation of the legacy left by Nathan, who passed away back in April 2012.
As the company’s founder, Nathan helped propel the business to success despite an everchanging economic landscape. Now, as the company’s leader, Randy continues to develop the talent of employees while continuing to search for properties for the company to develop. With passion and an eye for opportunity, Benderson Development has gained influence in the commercial real estate industry.
The Sarasota and Tampa Bay, FL communities are able to enjoy a part of Nathan Benderson, too. Nathan Benderson Park is home of the World Rowing Championships, and Randy Benderson serves on the board of directors, seeing and fundraising for its upkeep and maintenance into perpetuity.
Benderson Park also complements the globally-renowned boating event with a huge festival, supporting the arts and humanities. It’s never just been about industry and financial growth for either Benderson.
Benderson Park showcases local Sarasota and Tampa Bay metropolitan area talents. Notable performances from the Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe, the Bradenton- Sarasota Pop Orchestra, the Sarasota Cuban Ballet School, and the Asolo Reperatory Theater help drive diverse attendance at the park.
“He was a great man of warmth and modesty, whose achievements were enormous,” Randy Benderson said back in 2012 about his father. Randy will continue to walk in his father’s footsteps by growing the family business, keeping a modest and humorous attitude towards life, never taking himself too seriously as well, and always remembering to give back to the communities he helps to build.
