A talented engineer, Pritzker's best asset was his ability to take an ailing industrial company and turn into a highly profitable enterprise. Throughout his career, Pritzker revived about 60 companies, all of which were purchased by his brother Jay. These businesses collectively earned about $3 billion in revenue in the 1980s.
