He founded the S. Hayek holding company in 2004.


Hayek, who has never married, was born in 1953 in Kfar Saba and grew up in Bnei Brak.

His father was a merchant in Baghdad, a rep for the Hercules & Singer Company.

In 1979, Hayek began studying philosophy and history at Tel Aviv University, but soon decided to leave and study law in England. He reached the United Kingdom in 1980, after having performed his military service in the IDF's Intelligence. After finishing law he then went into business in real estate.[4]

He is a British citizen and divides his time between London and Tel Aviv.
