David is the younger of two children of Sivia and Allen Samson, whot divorced when he was still an infant. Alongside his mother and older sister he moved to New York City, where he later attended Bronx’s Horace Mann School. He then enrolled at Tufts University, but later transferred to the University of Wisconsin from which he graduated with Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics in 1990. David continued his education, and proceeded to obtain his law diploma from Yeshiva University’s Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law.
In 1993, David founded an international newspaper delivery company – News Travels Fast – which provided the same-day deliveries of The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times to Europe. However, with the rapid expansion of the internet, he was forced to shut down the company in 1996. In 1997, he became a member of leading global investment corporation Morgan Stanley, in which he served as an investment advisor for the next two years. All these involvements provided the basis for David Samson’s nowadays rather impressive net worth.
In 1999, Samson teamed up with his stepfather, Jeffrey Loria, and his then newly-owned Montreal Expos, where he began serving as the executive vice president. In 2002, David played a huge part in negotiations for the Expos’ sale when, after a compound franchise swap worth over $158.5 million, Loria became the owner of the Florida Marlins baseball team. Serving as the club’s president, under David Samson’s careful guidance the Marlins acquired several key squad additions which led to winning World Series in 2003, the second in the franchise’s now 24-year-long existence. These business achievements certainly helped David Samson to add a significant amount to his net worth.
Besides these, Samson is mainly responsible for the successful complete rebranding of the franchise into the Miami Marlins after the 2011 season, as well as for building the new, state of the art ballpark in mid-2012, which assured the team’s long-term stability in Major League Baseball competitions. However, all this wasn’t so smooth, as David was involved in contrivers regarding funding the new stadium, which eventually ended after a major lawsuit against the project was dismissed. Doubtlessly, all these ventures eventually made a huge impact on David Samson’s wealth.
Apart from business, David has also made some efforts towards acting – in 2009 he co-wrote and appeared in the “Do I Do” stageplay, while in 2014 he portrayed the Saturday Night Live’s creator Lorne Michaels in the “Not Ready for Primetime” production. In 2014, he also participated in the 28th season of TV reality show “Survivor”, but was the first one voted out. It is certain that all these appearances have helped David Samson to boost his popularity, and which resulted in an increment to his revenues.
When it comes to his personal life, David Samson has been married since 1990 to Cindi, with whom he has two daughters and a son. With his family, he currently resides in Plantation, Florida.
