Passages: Sidney Kirschner, Superior Group of Companies

Superior Group of Companies last week announced that Sidney Kirschner, Chairman of the Board of Directors, passed away on February 21, 2023 at the age of 88.

Mr. Kirschner joined the SGC Board in 1996, and served as its chairman for the past 11 years.  Apart from his service as a SGC director, Mr. Kirschner’s distinguished career included serving as chairman and chief executive officer of National Service Industries and chief executive officer of Northside Hospital, Inc. and Piedmont Physicians, as well as executive vice president and chief philanthropy officer of Piedmont Healthcare and head of The Alfred and Adele Davis Academy.

Michael Benstock, SGC’s Chief Executive Officer, commented “Sid was an invaluable mentor, director, and sounding board, but certainly more importantly, an incredible person, someone who dedicated much of his time and thought to philanthropic activities and to making those around him better people. I am honored to have been able to call Sid my friend. He will be missed. I, and the entire SGC community, extend our deepest sympathies to Carole, his wife, and the entire extended Kirschner family.”
