Jason Blum was born into a Jewish family, a son of Irving Blum, an independent art dealer, and Shirley, an art professor. Blum studied at the Vassar College from where he graduated in 1991. His career really started in 1995, when he produced his first movie “Kicking and Screaming” with Josh Hamilton, Eric Stoltz, and Samuel Gould.

In the 90’s, Blum worked with Bob and Harvey Weinstein and later for Warner Bros as a producer, before he went on to be a producing director at Ethan Hawke’s Malaparte Theater Company. These two collaborated on “Hamlet” (2000) with Kyle MacLachlan, Bill Murray, and Julia Stiles. Blum later worked on “Hysterical Blindness” (2002) starring Uma Thurman, Juliette Lewis, and Gena Rowlands, “The Darwin Awards” (2006), with Joseph Fiennes, Winona Ryder, and David Arquette, and “Griffin & Phoenix” (2006), starring Amanda Peet, Dermot Mulroney, and Sarah Paulson.

In 2007, Blum produced the horror movie “Paranormal Activity” with Katie Featherston, Micah Sloat, and Mark Fredrichs.

Simmons, and Melissa Benoist, “13 Sins” (2014), “Creep” (2014), and “The Normal Heart” (2014). Blum also filmed “The Purge: Anarchy” (2014), “Stretch” (2014) with Patrick Wilson, “The Lazarus Effect” (2015), “Insidious: Chapter 3” (2015), “The Gift” (2015) starring Jason Bateman, Rebecca Hall, and Joel Edgerton, and “The Visit” (2015), all of which increased his net worth by a large margin.

Most recently, Blum worked on “Sleight” (2016), “Hush” (2016), “Incarnate” (2016) starring Carice van Houten, Mark Steger, and Aaron Eckhart, “The Purge: Election Year” (2016), and “Viral” (2016).

Judith R. Faulkner was born on August 1943, in Madison, Wisconsin USA, and is an executive, best known to be the founder and CEO of the healthcare software company Epic Systems. She is considered by Forbes as “the most powerful woman in healthcare”. All of her efforts have helped put her net worth to where it is today.

How rich is Judith Faulkner? As of early-2017, sources inform us of a net worth that is at $2.4 billion, mostly earned through a successful career in the healthcare industry, which has ensured the position of her wealth.

Judy Faulkner Net Worth

Judith attended Dickinson College where she would earn a degree in mathematics. After graduating, she would then study for a master’s degree in computer science at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Faulkner created the company Human Services Computing after completing her master’s degree, putting in a $70,000 investment thanks to the help of her parents. The company would slowly grow and would later become Epic Systems Corporation, or Epic. The growth of her company helped her net worth increase at a rapid pace. The private healthcare company has produced software that is known to record more than 50 percent of patient’s records in the US, and they also hold a significant record for rest of the world, at around 2.5 percent of patient records worldwide. In 2005, the company moved its headquarters to Verona, Washington and has employed at least 9,500 people based on a report in 2016. It has slowly expanded its campus to include around 100,000 square feet of buildings, and the company’s continued expansion is a sign of Faulkner’s large net worth. The company has established its presence in other countries as well, including Australia, the Netherlands, the United Arab Emirates and Denmark.

Epic serves many large healthcare groups and medical centers, offering them software which helps in scheduling and registration. The data system also includes doctors, emergency personnel, radiologists, nurses, pharmacists, and more. The success of the company has attracted numerous competitors, such as MEDITECH, Allscripts, and Cerner. One of Epic Systems’ largest clients is Kaiser Permanente which decided to use Epic in 2003 for their electronic records system. Other clients Epic has include The Mount Sinai Hospital, Johns Hopkins Hospital, the Cleveland Clinic and Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. In 2016, Epic gained Partners HealthCare as a client for a contract worth $1.2 billion; the deal has been criticized as being larger than the cost of any of Partners’ buildings.

Epic Systems was voted the Top Overall Software Suite in the 2015/2016 Best in KLAS Awards, and have also won several other awards.

For her personal life, it is known that Judith is married to Dr. Gordon Faulkner, and they have three children. The family reside in Madison, Wisconsin.

At first he was responsible for the division of Daylin, later moving on to the Handy Dan Home Improvement Centers division. Due to an internal power struggle, Arthur was made redundant, and consequently Blank, together with the former CEO of Handy Dan Bernard Marcus, founded the retailer of construction and home improvement products and services The Home Depot. The company was very successful thus adding billions to the net worth of the founders, including Arthur Blank. After working for 19 years as a president of the company, Blank retired in 2001.

Martin Shkreli was born on 1st April 1983, in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, New York City USA, of Albanian and Croatian descent. He is an entrepreneur, probably best known as the CEO of Turning Pharmaceuticals. He became famous in 2015, when he bought the US rights to Daraprim, an essential medicine according to the World Health Organization, and raised its price from $13.50 a tablet to $750.

So just how rich is Martin Shkreli? Sources estimate Shkreli`s net worth to be over $100 million, with most of his wealth coming from the financial and pharmaceutical industries, as a hedge funds manager and later as founder of start-up companies.

Martin Shkreli Net Worth $100 Million

Martin Shkreli was born into a poor family, however, he graduated from New York’s Baruch College in 2004 with a degree in business. He had started an internship at Cramer Berkowitz & Co when he was only 17, and by 2006 he was able to start his own hedge fund, Elea Capital Management.

His talent for financial businesses and his success as a stock trader brought Martin Shkreli onto Forbes’ list “30 under 30. Finance”, being ranked number 23. However, his first hedge fund didn`t go well because of a lawsuit, so in 2008 Shkreli started a similar business, MSMB Capital Management, which allowed him to move to the pharmaceutical industry.

He founded the company Retrophin LLC in 2011, interested in medicines for rare diseases. A year later, the entrepreneur had to deal with accusations of using the company’s money to pay investors from his previous financial businesses, and the $65 million lawsuit forced Shkreli out of the company. In 2015, he became the founder and the CEO of Turing Pharmaceuticals AG, which became famous after having bought – for $55 million – the manufacturing license for Daraprim. The medicine treats Toxoplasmosis in pregnant women, new born, and persons with compromised immune systems, so the decision of raising its price made Martin Shkreli famous all over the US and transformed him in “the most hated man in America”, according to the BBC. He also holds an important part of the biotech company KaloBios.

At the end of 2015, the FBI arrested Shkreli for securities fraud. The scandal has revealed that the CEO of Turing Pharmaceuticals had $45 million in a brokerage account at E-Trade, and specialized magazines speculated that his net worth includes other financial accounts and assets. The entrepreneur paid a $5 million bond for his release from custody.

Martin Shkreli made himself a reputation using the social media and the media. His image of a Wall Street villain is the result of controversy, messages on Twitter, and his source of income, containing in ‘legal’ frauds, small biotech companies, and stock promoters. He quit his CEO position after his arrest.

The entrepreneur shared parts of his personal life online, but nothing about relationships. He used to post pictures and videos with him playing chess or playing the guitar. He bought a $2 million copy of the album released by the rap group Wu-Tang Clan. He also tried to purchase an e-sports team for $1.2 million, but the vendors declined his offer.

Ron Pratte, a native of Chandler, a suburb in Phoenix, Arizona USA, is an American businessman and car collector. He is the founder and former CEO of Pratte Development Company, Inc., but is best known for his renowned car collection.

So just how wealthy is Ron Pratte? Sources state that Pratte has amassed a net worth of over $350 million, as of early 2017. His wealth has been collected through his house-building business as well as by selling his elaborate car collection.

 

Ron Pratte Net Worth $350 Million

During his teenage years, Pratte worked at a gas station, where he would dream about having cars like some of the exquisite ones that came to the station. After high school, he started a business of building houses, launching a wood framing and concrete foundation company called Pratte Development Company, Inc. in Phoenix, Arizona. Starting such a venture in one of the fastest growing areas of the country made the business grow quite rapidly, especially during the building boom in Arizona, the time when the company had over 4,000 workers and was building as many as 60 houses a day. It became one of the largest wood framing and concrete foundation companies in the country. The blessings of its success enabled Pratte to earn a sizable net worth.

At the height of the housing boom, Pratte sold his company to Pulte Homes, another large home-building company, which boosted his wealth. Although many would consider his choice to sell such a blossoming business as stupid, Pratte actually made an extremely smart move – he cashed out just before the housing market crashed.

Meanwhile, he began collecting various automobilia. After selling the company, he fulfilled his quest and started to add cars to his collection, placing them in a house he built near his home in Chandler, which eventually turned into a vintage-car museum. Pratte got his start in collector car circles at an auction in Scottsdale in 2003, when he bought 52 vehicles for his collection. In 2006 he purchased a GM Futurliner, one of only nine to still exist, for $4.1 million. The following year he spent $5.5 million on the last remaining 1966 Shelby Cobra Super Snake. Many other purchases followed, among them a 1950 GM Futurliner Parade of Progress Tour Bus which he bought for $4.3 million, a 1954 Pontiac Bonneville Special Motorama Concept Car bought for $3 million, a 1936 Delahaye “Whatthehaye” Street-Rod, a 1969 Ford Mustang BOSS 429, and the last Sting Ray, a 1967 Chevrolet Corvette coupe which Pratte purchased for $660,000. He bought most of the vehicles at the famed Barrett-Jackson auctions. Aside from cars, Pratte’s collection included various automobilia, such as gas-pump globes, rare pedal cars and signs for automakers, motor oil and gas stations.

After more than 10 years spent on buying numerous unique vehicles, Ron decided to sell his entire collection, which included 112 cars and over 1,600 pieces of automobilia, at the Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale in 2015. The auction was attended by a huge number of car enthusiasts and bidders from all around the world. As reported by Barret-Jackson, Pratte’s automobilia collection was auctioned off for an astonishing $6.55 million, setting the world record for such an auction. The total vehicle and automobilia sales from the entire Pratte collection surpassed $40.44 million. Pratte’s net worth hugely intensified.

The auction of his collection is considered one of the most significant ones ever offered in Barrett-Jackson history and one of the most-remembered ones. It made Pratte an extremely rich man.

In his private life, Pratte has been very secretive and quiet. Sources believe he was married and is single at present.

The acclaimed car collector has been involved in philanthropy. Upon selling his home development company, portions of the money he netted went to a charity organization. He also purchased cars with the proceeds benefiting various charity causes. At the 2015 auction, a great part of profit was collected for charities.

James Henry Clark was born on 23 March 1944, in Plainview, Texas USA, and is an entrepreneur and computer scientist, best known for founding Silicon Graphics, Inc., Netscape Communications Corporation and Healtheon technology companies.

A noted entrepreneur, how loaded is Jim Clark? Sources state that Clark has acquired a net worth of over $2 billion, as of early 2017. His assets include the 300-foot sailing yacht Athena and the 100-foot racing sailboat Comanche. The main source of his fortune has been his involvement in his technology companies, and in several other business ventures and investments.

Jim Clark Net Worth $2 Billion

Clark grew up in Plainview with his two siblings; his childhood was a quite rough period due to his family struggling with poverty. To make matters worse, his parents divorced when he was 14, and he was raised by his mother. After making trouble in high school that led to suspension, he left school and joined the Navy, eventually getting a high schoolGED, which enabled him to enroll at the University of New Orleans, obtaining his BA and MA degrees in Physics. He later earned a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Utah.

After completing his education, Clark worked at Computer Graphics Lab located at the New York Institute of Technology. He was then hired as an assistant professor at the University of California, Santa Cruz, and later served as an electrical engineering associate professor at Stanford University, where he developed the Geometry Engine program, which generated three-dimensional computer graphics. These were a good basis to his net worth.

Clark left academia in 1981, and the following year he and six graduate students of Stanford University founded Silicon Graphics, Inc., a technology company focused on 3D imaging and developing computer hardware and software. The company grew rapidly, and in just four years it had revenues of $40 million, becoming the most successful company in Silicon Valley, and eventually the world leader in the production of Hollywood movie visual effects and 3-D imaging. The blossoming success of the company significantly contributed to Clark’s wealth. However, due to conflicts within management, he left the company in 1994 and sold his stock.

Shortly after, he and Marc Andreessen, who developed the Mosaic Web browser, founded Netscape, a company devoted to Web software called Netscape Navigator, which quickly began dominating the browser market. In 1996 the company made a very successful IPO, initiating an internet stock-market boom on Wall Street. Clark went on to make a $5 million investment, from which he eventually cashed out $2 billion when Netscape was sold to America Online in 1999, boosting his net worth quite considerably.

Meanwhile in 1996, Clark founded Healtheon, a start-up company focused on streamlining communication and paperwork in the health care system. And just like his previous two successful ventures, Healtheon attracted numerous investors during the internet boom years, achieving a market capitalization of more than $1 billion, which intensified Clark’s fortune. The company became the biggest IPO of the year in 1999, merging with WebMD, another successful online health forum, and forming the WebMD Corporation, later renamed to WebMD.

Therefore, Clark became the first entrepreneur to create three different multibillion-dollar technology companies, which sealed his reputation as a genius, and bringing him impressive wealth. This wealth enabled him to become involved in other business ventures, constantly multiplying his net worth. These included a biotechnology company called DNA Sciences and a wealth management unit created for wealthy individuals called myCFO, which was eventually sold for $30 million. He also served as chairman and financial backer of network-security startup Neoteris, and has invested in several other companies too, such as Apple.

In addition, Clark served as a co-producer and financial backer of the 2009 documentary “The Cove”. He has also published an autobiography called “Netscape Time: The Making of the Billion-Dollar Start-Up That Took on Microsoft”, covering the company’s race to beat Microsoft for Internet dominance.

In his private life, Clark has married four times and has three children. His wife since 2009 is Australian model Kristy Hinze.

Leo Dennis Kozlowski was born on the 16th November 1946, in Newark, New Jersey, USA and is a businessman who is most “famous” for the Tyco scandal – as a former CEO of Tyco International Ltd., Kozlowski was responsible for paying an investment banking fee of $20 million from Tyco to former director Frank Walsh, and receiving $81 million in unauthorized bonuses from the company as well as for buying unauthorized an art collection worth over $14.7 million paid by, you guessed it – Tyco!

Have you ever wondered how much wealth this profligate businessman has accumulated so far? How rich Dennis Kozlowski is? According to sources, it is estimated that the total size of Dennis Kozlowski’s net worth, as of early 2017, exceeds the sum of $600 million, been acquired through successful business, strategic acquisitions, and stock market sales as well as from the Tyco scandal already mentioned above.

Dennis Kozlowski Net Worth $600 million

Dennis was born to Agnes Kozell, a school guard and Leo Kelly Kozlowski, a police investigator, and is of American and Polish ancestry. He graduated from Seton Hall University with a Bachelor of Science degree in 1968, and in 1970 began his career as auditor in mergers and acquisitions at the SCM Corporation. He later worked for several other companies such as Cabot Corporation where he was in the finance sector, and Nashua Corporation where he served as an analyst and director of audit. These engagements provided the basis for Dennis Kozlowski’s net worth.

In 1975, Kozlowski joined Tyco Laboratories – later rebranded into Tyco International Ltd. – where he spent the next 27 years climbing the ladder through various chief’s positions to vice president, and finally in 1992 being named company CEO. Under the leadership of Kozlowski, Tyco dramatically expanded during the 1990s – from modest industrial parts manufacturing recording $20 million in annual sales to an international conglomerate with over $36 billion in yearly revenues. Through a series of smart investments and acquisitions in which he spent more than $60 million and merged over 200 small companies, Kozlowski raised Tyco to the very top of the global business scene, increasing its stock market shares value by almost 800%. All these accomplishments helped Dennis Kozlowski to increase his net worth by a large margin.

Apart from his professional achievements, Kozlowski is widely known for his rather extravagant lifestyle and lavish parties – he spent over $2.1 million of Tyco’s money on organizing his (now ex-) wife’s 40th birthday party on Sardinia, Italy, which featured a private, one-hour concert by Jimmy Buffett and “vodka-peeing” full-size ice replica of Michelangelo’s masterpiece David. In 2000 Tyco allegedly paid $30 million for Kozlowski’s New York City’s apartment which featured $15,000 worth of ‘antique poodle umbrella stand’, $6,000 worth of shower curtains as well as a $2,200-valued gilded wastebasket. Apart from all these, Kozlowski managed to gather an impressive fine arts collection, worth over $14.7 million as well as $5 million worth of oceanfront estate based on Nantucket Island, all paid through Tyco’s accounts. All these “ventures” barely impacted Dennis Kozlowski’s net worth, as all those were paid by Tyco International Ltd.

A day after resigning from Tyco’s CEO position in 2002, Kozlowski was faced with charges for evading over $1 million in taxes for his fine arts collection, however, a mistrial was declared. Later that year, he was charged for “pilfering” $170 million as well as for receiving over $81 million in unauthorized bonuses from Tyco and almost $430 million for tainted expense reports paid again by, yes you are right – Tyco. In 2005, Kozlowski was found guilty and sentenced to serve between eight and 25 years in jail. However, in 2014 after serving eight years and four months, Dennis Kozlowski was released from prison. Apart from serving his time in jail, in addition he was ordered to pay $70 million to the US government as well as $134 million to Tyco. Doubtlessly, these heavily impacted on Dennis Kozlowski’s net worth.

When it comes to his personal life, Dennis Kozlowski was married twice. From his first marriage with Angeles Suarez(1971-2000), he has two children. Between 2000 and 2006, Kozlowski was married to waitress Karen Lee Mayo, who obviously had the most expensive 40th birthday party ever, and receive a significant divorce settlement..

Daymond grew up with his mother and grandfather, and even while still at high school he worked full time, and started his own commuter van service. The idea of starting a clothing business came to Daymond’s head after he saw wool hats being sold for 20 dollars each. Daymond considered them to be overpriced, and with his neighbour they made around 90 hats and sold them near the New York Coliseum, earning $800 in one day, Daymond continued by mortgaging his mother’s house for $100,000 for start-up capital, and invited his friends J. Alexander Martin and Keith Perrin into the business as he needed trustworthy people, and the company started sewing T-shirts, sweatshirts and hockey jerseys with the logo of FUBU – ‘For Us By Us’. In 1994 the FUBU Company took-off after visiting the worldwide fare in Las Vegas and receiving orders for over $300,000, and expanding so that in 1998 FUBU reported over $350,000 in revenues; currently FUBU is valued at $6 billion, a sizeable part of which represents Daymond John’s net worth.

Additionally, Daymond John’s experience is now so valued that he is invited to numerous engagements as a motivational speaker, including AT&T’s History Makers Tour, California First Lady Maria Shriver’s Women’s Conference, and Babson College School of Entrepreneurship among many others.

Dyslexia is no problem for John; he is the author of two books – his autobiography ‘Display of Power’ and ‘The Brand Within’. In 2005, he appeared on the big screen in the film ‘The Crow: Wicked Prayer’ directed by Lance Mungia as Proud Foot Joe. Later, he appeared in the television series ‘The Game’ created by Mara Brock Akil, and the talk show ‘The Real’.
