200. Tom Gores
The Israeli native moved with his family to Michigan in 1968 at age 4, growing up in Flint, where he stocked shelves at a grocery store. He and his family prospered greatly—his Platinum Equity closed a $6.5 billion fund in March; brother Alec (No. 359) made his own fortune— while their adopted hometown decayed. To help Flint, Gores launched a campaign last year called Flint-now to raise money for the water crisis. In August he pledged $1 million to create the Flint Promise scholarship program.
