Dr. Larry Kaiser and Lindy Snider

Share

It’s not surprising that Lindy Snider talks about her family as a team. She’s the daughter of the late Ed Snider, founder of the Flyers and former chairman of Comcast Spectacor. “The team has to come first,” Snider says. “When you’re a parent and a spouse, the family takes priority over your own needs.”

But happy marriages aren’t part of the Snider legacy. “I came from a broken home, and my parents weren’t friends,” Snider says. “I wanted to take from my own childhood and make it better for my kids.”

The odds seemed to be against Snider’s 2006 marriage to Dr. Larry Kaiser. Her Lindi Skin empire was still in its infancy, and she had an actual infant, plus five children from their previous marriages. Then, in 2008, Kaiser became president of the University of Texas Health Science Center. For the next three years, he worked in Houston, returning to Bryn Mawr on weekends. “The lesson I learned is … never do that,” Snider says with a laugh. “A new company, a baby, and a husband who is only there on weekends was incredibly difficult.”

During those years, Snider was the family’s GM. “All of our kids are close, and that’s one of our joys,” says Kaiser. “Lindy made that happen.”

Snider shares the credit with Kaiser’s ex-wife. “We made the very adult, very conscious decision to make things as easy as possible for the kids,” she says.

Kaiser is now president and CEO of Temple University Health System and dean of its medical school. Snider’s commitments are just as epic. She pursues them with the sass and fire that charmed Kaiser when he first met her. “She’s Lindy Snider,” he says. “There’s no one like her.”
