Austin Area Billionaires

We’ve got 10!  The 2023 Forbes list of the wealthiest Americans is out and 10 are from Central Texas. Elon Musk tops the list, worth over $250 billion.  Michael Dell is #11 at over $70 billion.  Robert Smith is #89 worth $9.2B and he controls Vista Equity Partners.  #96 is Joe Gebbia. He’s new to Austin and was a cofounder of Airbnb.  Tito’s Handmade Vodka propels Bert ‘Tito’ Beveridge to #140.  Thai Lee is #204 and she runs SHI International, an IT firm.  Joe Liemandt founded Trilogy Software and he's #215. Hayes Barnard is new to the area and the list. At #304, he’s the cofounder and CEO of GoodLeap.  Drayton McLane, who made his money in logistics and distribution, is #366.  Finally, John Paul DeJoria, the man behind Paul Mitchell products is #379.  Sadly, I didn’t help any of them buy their homes.
