After a decade of working with others in the industry, pageantry became Randy Sanders’ full-time occupation in 1987. In 1996 he founded Sanders & Associates, Inc., commonly known as Pageant Associates, and secured the license to produce the Miss New York USA and Miss New York Teen USA pageants. In 1999 his New York representative, Kimberly Pressler, won the title of Miss USA and he has since seen many of his titleholders place as a semi-finalist or finalist in the Miss USA and Miss Teen USA Pageants! In fact, his Miss Connecticut Teen USA, Logan West, won the title of Miss Teen USA 2012, while his Miss West Virginia Teen USA placed as the First Runner-up and his Miss Vermont Teen USA won the coveted Miss Congeniality title. Randy is currently the State Director of the Miss USA and Miss Teen USA state preliminary pageants for Connecticut, Indiana, Pennsylvania, Vermont and West Virginia.
