94. Dennis Washington


Washington struck a $1.2 billion deal in July to buy Canada’s Do­min­ion Di­a­mond Corp. The in­dus­tri­al­ist al­ready owns a cop­per and molyb­de­num mine in Mon­tana and re­gional rail­roads in Mon­tana and Bri­tish Columbia, and he has a stake in Sea­s­pan, which owns a fleet of roughly 90 con­tainer ships. His love of machin­ery dates back decades: Af­ter high school, Washington moved to Alaska, where he worked as a heavy-crane op­er­a­tor.
