John Middleton, Phillies managing owner and parent of POWERS, has made Forbes’ Richest People in America list. He is joined by Joshua Harris and Michael Rubin– a Sixers co-owner with Harris with whom I’ve had the pleasure(?) of being on email exchanges at GSI Commerce (sort of guy who will fire off late-night “fix it”-s to stabilize his empire). Middleton and Rubin are tied for 256th at $2.6 billion, slightly ahead of Harris, 268th, who is worth only $2.5 billion.
The best part is that Middleton, who has routinely kept a low profile, doesn’t have a picture. He’s the super rich equivalent of a Twitter egg. But that’s poppycock, I say. He’s the Phillies’ front man now. Needs a profile. He’s the next great MLB owner. So I went ahead and put his beautiful billionaire strands on the list:
There, that’s better. [Nothing I could do to remove the bags under Rubin’s eyes, however.]
Sadly, Jeffrey Lurie, whose estimated net worth is $1.1 billion, didn’t crack the list.
You can see the full list here. Love billionaires. Love them.
