Source of Wealth, Founder and majority shareholder of Icahn Enterprises ,,,
When it comes to owning a profitable piece of all the pies, nobody can match the business-savvy of Carl Icahn. As the majority shareholder of his eponymous holding company, Icahn Enterprises, Icahn has a substantial stake or outright control of corporations as far ranging as Time Warner, Revlon and Marvel Comics.
During his rise to the List of Billionaires, Icahn became an icon of the hostile takeover. One of Icahn’s first notable acquisitions stemmed from his takeover of airline TWA in 1985, and the subsequent selling off of much of the company’s assets. Icahn eventually gained a profit of $469 million, leaving the airline with as much as $540 million in debt.
Icahn divorced Czech ballerina, Liba Trejbal, in 1999, though they were separated for the previous six years. Also in 1999, he married his assistant, Gail Golden.
