Randy Benderson, CEO and Director of Benderson Development Company of Sarasota, Florida runs one of the largest privately-held real estate development companies in the United States. He’s known for getting a project done the right way.
Nathan Benderson Park, in addition to hosting the World Rowing Championships, caters to the arts by showcasing a huge festival of local talent of the Sarasota area. Randy Benderson serves on the board of the NBP Foundation, which privately raises funds for construction and maintenance, running day to day operations and keeping Benderson Park pristine.
The World Rowing Championships included performances from the Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe, the Bradenton-Sarasota Pop Orchestra, and the Sarasota Cuban Ballet School.
Benderson also commits his time and efforts to team up with organizations like the Sarasota Film Festival where locals get to watch a screening of the live action remake of 1991’s animated “Beauty and the Beast.” The sunset screening was completely free of charge and was held at the rowing venue’s Regatta Island. The venue also holds parties for local arts groups like the Asolo Repertory Theatre.
Benderson sees the benefit of being engaged within the communities his development company touches and enriches. He employs over 300 individuals from diverse backgrounds and Benderson Development Company has a presence in 38 states countrywide.
From Buffalo to Tampa Bay and Beyond
Randy Benderson relocated Benderson Corporate Headquarters to Sarasota in 2003. Benderson Development Company was founded in 1950 in Buffalo operating among the nation’s largest private real estate companies. They did then what they do now: own, develop, and manage retail, commercial, hotel, and residential properties, keeping a presence in 38 US states.
Enriching the Community with Economic and Humanistic Growth
It’s no hot scoop that BDC has made major investments in the Sarasota community, creating jobs and inspiring new growth, yet giving back to communities they help enrich with both temporal and monetary contributions. He will continue to hold screenings and cultural events for all to enjoy equally at Nathan Benderson Park as a patron of the arts.
