About Westgate Resorts

Through David A. Siegel's vision, persistence and resourcefulness, Central Florida Investments, Inc. (CFI) has become the largest privately held corporation in the Central Florida area. Founded in 1970 as a real estate development firm, CFI now operates dozens of other businesses in addition to Westgate Resorts, including: hotels, insurance, magazines, real estate, travel services, oil, cattle, and internet companies.

From a tiny orange grove and the dream of a man working out of his garage, Westgate Resorts and its parent company, Central Florida Investments (CFI), have grown into the largest privately held timeshare company in the world, employing over 10,000 around the United States.

Westgate's newest and most ambitious product is a testament to the vision of the company's founder.
