Lee Hanley, CEO of Vestar has lost his battle with pancreatic cancer.
Lee Hanley had a major impact on the community. He will be greatly missed.
It’s with a very heavy heart that I’m writing about the passing of Lee Hanley- a visionary and family oriented man who led by example. The CEO of Vestar Development and an icon in the commercial development industry nationwide, has lost his battle with pancreatic cancer. Our thoughts are with his beloved wife Nancy Hanley and his family. Together, he and Nancy have had a major impact on the Phoenix area community and its charities.
It’s a heartbreaking time now for those who were close to Lee, only 70 years old. Patrick McGinley of Vestar is one of his many close business friends struggling with the news. “ It's a very tough time here as well as a great loss for our community.......Lee was a wonderful mentor but an even better person,” notes Patrick.
Lee's Memorial Service is scheduled for a Friday, August 17, 2012 at 10:00 a.m.at Scottsdale Bible Church, 7601 East Shea Boulevard. The offices of Vestar will be closed on the day of the Memorial Service.
If you plan to attend the service, we suggest that you come early in light of parking considerations.
