206. Jimmy Haslam
The family truck-stop company, whose board Haslam joined as a 20-year-old college senior, is now Warren Buffett’s latest conquest. In October, Berkshire Hathaway announced it will acquire 39% of $20 billion (2016 sales) Pilot Flying J, which he runs as CEO. It will buy an additional 41% in 2023. Pilot admitted to defrauding its dieselfuel customers in 2014 and agreed to a $92 million settlement; in July, 4 employees pleaded guilty to the same charges. He and his brother Bill, Tennessee’s governor, have denied any knowledge of wrongdoing. With his wife, Dee, Haslam owns the NFL’S Cleveland Browns.
