Leonard Shapiro

Chairman & CEO
Commander Enterprises

Leonard “Len” Shapiro is president of Commander Enterprises, LLC, a family-owned real estate investment company. A graduate of Boston University, Shapiro’s connection to Syracuse University comes from his wife, Caryl ’82, his son Ben, a 2014 graduate of the David B. Falk College of Sport and Human Dynamics, and his daughter, Eve, a senior at the Whitman School.

Shapiro is a member of the Syracuse University National Parent Board, and he and Caryl are loyal and generous supporters of Syracuse University and the Whitman School. They recently established the Caryl and Leonard Shapiro Endowed Scholarship Fund to benefit a Whitman student. In addition, Shapiro is a trustee of Hofstra University and serves on the Nassau County Planning Commission.

His prior volunteer efforts include membership on numerous boards, including the Portledge School, Congregation Tifereth Israel, the Mellelo Mental Health Center and North Shore Hospital, among many others.
