OUTSTANDING LEADERSHIP AWARDEE

JAMES GROSFELD

So many in the Detroit metropolitan area and beyond have been touched by Nancy and Jim Grosfeld’s generosity.

 

Jim was born and raised in Woodmere, Long Island and later moved to New York City.  He attended Amherst College and Columbia Law School.  He joined the Wall Street law firm of Kelly, Drye, Newhall in New York City and later became House Counsel to Goodbody & Company.  He was also a founding partner of two hedge funds.  In 1974, Jim joined the Pulte Group as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, where he remained until his retirement.  Since he has been a private investor.

 

Jim has served on the Advisory Board of Fannie Mae, and as a Director of Interstate Bakeries Corporation, Addington Resources, Ramco-Gershenson, Copart, Inc. and Lexington Realty Trust.  He was also a director of BlackRock, where he served for over 20 years.

 

Jim has also served on the boards of the Anti-Defamation League, The United Jewish Foundation of Metro Detroit, Temple Beth El and Henry Ford Hospital.

 

Jim has chosen to focus his philanthropic efforts on ensuring a strong future for Detroit and its Jewish community.  Among the healthcare, academic and research causes that he supports, Jim holds the Yeshiva close to his heart.  He attends the Yeshiva Dinner every year and sits on the dais.  In 2019, in a truly inspiring and benevolent tribute, Jim dedicated the new campus of the Beth Jacob Girls School in honor of his wife, Nancy.

 

Nancy and Jim are the parents of Jenna and Jason Grosfeld, Drs. Rachel Kukes Schwartz and Mark Schwartz, and adoring grandparents of Jay, Alex and Janie Grosfeld and Benjamin, Jonathan and Julia Schwartz.
