Andrew Tisch is the co-chair of Loews Corporation, the company founded by his father Larry Tisch and uncle Bob Tisch. Together with his brother, James S. Tisch, and his first cousin, Jonathan Tisch, Andrew oversees a holding company involved in hotels, oil, and insurance. His mother is Wilma "Billie" Stein.
Like his brother and cousin — with whom he makes up the triumvirate now in charge of the family business — Andrew has been involved with the company his entire career. In the 1980s, he served as president of Bulova; a decade later, he moved over to the Lorillard Tobacco Company. (Loews has since divested both.)
Following the deaths of Loews founders Larry and Bob, the reins were handed to Andrew's brother, Jim, who now serves as CEO. His first cousin Jon oversees the company's hotel business.
Andrew's other first cousin — Jon's brother — is Steve Tisch, the movie mogul who produced Forrest Gump, Risky Business, and other big-budget Hollywood films, as well as co-owner of the National Football League's New York Giants. Andrew has two other brothers: Tom Tisch and Dan Tisch. Both own significant stakes in Loews Corp., but are not involved on a day-to-day basis.
Andrew has been married twice:
- Susan Hiat who he has since divorced. They have a son, Alexander Hiat Tisch (born 1979) and a daughter Lacey Ann Tisch (born 1981). Both Lacey and Alexander were married by Susan Hiat's father, a rabbi, at the Central Synagogue in Manhattan. Susan's sister, Merryl Hiat, is married to Andrew's brother, James S. Tisch.
- Ann Rubenstein, a former reporter for NBC who co-founded an all-girls public school in Harlem. They have two daughters named Sarah Tisch and Charlotte Tisch.
