Robert Shasha

Inspired Leadership and Lifetime Achievement Awards

Robert Shasha has been a long-time member of ISEF’s board and has co-chaired the ISEF Investment Committee for over a decade. He believes in the mission of ISEF to empower the needy youth of Israel to better themselves and to contribute to our world through education.

Mr. Shasha was born in the United States to parents who came from Bagdad, Iraq. He grew up with both cultures, in a large, loving extended family. After graduating from the Wharton School with a BS in Economics, he went on to receive an MBA degree from IMD in Lausanne, Switzerland. At first Mr. Shasha worked with his father in the family company in the textile industry. Then he went into commercial real estate, focusing on shopping centers and industrial buildings. Currently he is CEO and President of The Cotswold Group, which he founded in 1983 and which owns and manages major commercial real estate holdings in eight states, from the East to the Midwest.

Mr. Shasha is a proud father of three children, Jordan, David, and Caroline.
