Malcolm Glazer, who died in 2014, inherited First Allied Corp. in 1943 and built it into a retail powerhouse that today has upward of 6M SF of prime space around the country.
In the 1990s, he began a pivot into sports team ownership. He paid $182M for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 1995. He led the team during its only Super Bowl victory in 2003, and that same year he bought the storied Manchester United club of the English Premier League. That $1.4B investment has more than doubled in value since.
Malcolm’s widow, Linda, and their six children now preside over the family fortune. Edward Glazer founded and runs US Property Trust, which owns and operates real estate throughout the United States. He also serves as co-chairman of First Allied Corp. with brother Kevin and co-president of the Glazer Family Foundation with sister Darcie Glazer Kassewitz — Scott Klocksin
