Leo Lisker founded our business in 1954, with his brother Larry at his side, and growth was steady.
In 1960, when the brothers opened an office in Antwerp’s famed diamond district, they chose the name Antwerp Distributors.
The Lisker family tradition of quality, expertise, and integrity continues throughout the decades.
That tradition includes generous philanthropic giving and a deep commitment to ensuring that that all of our diamonds originate from ethical, environmentally responsible sources.
Leo Lisker’s wife, Phyllis, serves today as Antwerp Distributors’ President; his brother Larry, as Executive Vice President; and his grandson Dov, as Operations Manager.
Phyllis carries forward the extraordinary diamond legacy of her late husband, Leo Lisker, founder of Antwerp Distributors, Inc. Her thoroughgoing knowledge of the industry and deep institutional memory strengthen Antwerp’s efforts in countless ways. Phyllis monitors our inventory control and manages senior staff.
Dov’s superb gemological knowledge and operational skills are a driving force at Antwerp Distributors. He’s involved in every aspect of the business and totally committed to embracing new technology and propelling the company forward. A grandson of founder Leo Lisker, he represents the third generation of the Lisker family at Antwerp.
