→Adam I. Sandow is chief executive officer and chairman of SANDOW, which he founded in 2003. Using his vast experience with public and private media companies, Sandow has built his privately held company through a series of organic growth and strategic acquisitions. Its diverse group of brands allows SANDOW to strategically cross-pollinate and create unique businesses that help drive its aggressive ten year growth.
Prior to launching his namesake company, Sandow was a principal in Internet start-up and wedding media company The Knot (now called XO Group), which he joined after having sold his first publishing business in 1999. His entrepreneurial expertise and extensive knowledge of the media industry were instrumental in orchestrating The Knot’s explosive growth and ultimate IPO in 2000.
A serial entrepreneur, Sandow started his first business while a freshman at the University of Miami. He quickly grew his first company from a single client to diversified media company including magazines, books and marketing services. By the age of 25, he had launched his first national consumer magazine, Honeymoon, which quickly became the best-selling travel magazine on newsstands nationwide.
Sandow is passionate about launching and developing new brands and businesses that defy traditional rules—from launching TestTube, the first beauty sampling subscription program, in 2006, to acquiring the worldwide rights to the iconic Fred Segal brand in 2012 and announcing plans to expand its presence around the world—from Tokyo to Vegas, to introducing LuxeBox™, the world’s most exclusive home design resource, delivered to the doorsteps of affluent homebuyers. He has created a fast-growing, dynamic company with an entrepreneurial spirit that values innovation and great ideas.
