Carl H. Lindner, Jr.
Lindner parlayed his small interest in a family dairy business into one of the largest and most successful financial conglomerates in the United States. Beginning with the purchase of one insurance company in the late 1950’s, Lindner went on to acquire several businesses – often creating significant turnarounds and generating strong returns for shareholders. From virtually nothing, Lindner has built a company with approximately $17 billion in assets.
