Todd Boehly


CEO of investment rm Eldridge Industries, Boehly won the bidding war for English soccer club Chelsea in May, when he teamed up with Clearlake Capital to snag the storied franchise from sanctioned Russian billionair­e Roman Abramovich for $3.1 billion. Boehly’s old boss at Guggenheim Partners, Mark Walter (No. 190), with whom he partly owns the Los Angeles Lakers and Dodgers, also backed his bid. Eldridge has investment­s in everything from Bruce Springstee­n’s song rights to daily fantasy and sports-betting rm DraftKings. In July, it agreed to acquire the Hollywood Foreign Press Associatio­n, which hosts the Golden Globes; Boehly is its interim CEO.
