With his arrival in the United States in 1904, Leo Lippow quickly began pursuing his entrepreneurial instincts. Throughout the following 44 years, Leo prospered and acquired valuable assets for himself and his family.
In 1948, Leo formed Lippow Development Co. as a vehicle to pass his hard-earned wealth to the next generation of the Lippow family.
With Leo’s passing, his son Sidney Lippow took over the family business. With his persistence, dedication, wisdom and loyalty to the wealth and asset base, Lippow Development Co. grew.
