Katz, Andy


Andrew Scott Katz was born January 9, 1962, in New York City, New York. By 1964, Mike Katz, his father, was well-known in Las Vegas, Nevada for providing an answering service and subsequently for opening the Manpower franchise to serve the growing town. In time, this family business grew and the eldest sons, Bob and Mel opened franchises in Salt Lake City, Utah and San Diego, California, respectively.

Katz attended public school, Hebrew school and was involved with Jewish youth organizations. Andy easily slipped into active leadership roles; it was a role he would continue during his years at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, where he earned a Business degree and was active with the Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity. Katz passed away suddenly on February 23, 2016.
