Here’s What the Richest Person in Colorado Does (and What He Makes)
$10.9 billion is a pretty large number to wrap your head around, but that's the net worth of Philip Anschutz (and his name probably sounds familiar if you've been to a UC Health medical facility in Denver — they're named after him). He's not only the wealthiest in Colorado, but he's one of the richest people in the world. So, what does he do besides hang out with David Beckham and James Cameron?
According to USA Today's recent article on the richest man or woman from every state, Anschutz has invested in 'oil, railroads, real estate and entertainment.' At first, Anschutz Entertainment Group, which owns arenas and stadiums all over the world, may not ring a bell — until you call it by its acronym, 'AEG.' Recognize it?
Forbes reports that the 'Denver entertainment mogul' is also a partial owner of the Lakers as well as a NHL hockey team, and he owns thousands of acres of land in Wyoming, but resides here in Colorado.
