Sosthenes Behn
In 1933, after his brother’s death, Behn took sole control over International Telephone and Telegraph, the company he and his brother, Hernand Behn, co-founded. Behn devised a financial formula by which ITT was able to weather the severe losses of the Depression. When Behn retired, ITT employed, through 100 subsidiaries around the world, over 40,000 people and was doing an annual business in excess of $500 million.
