San Diegans Sparse in Forbes 400 List
The list of the 400 richest Americans, recently published by Forbes Magazine, is light on San Diegans this year. Money manager Charles Brandes at $1.5 billion is number 269. Irwin Jacobs, co-founder of Qualcomm, is number 365 at $1.1 billion. Others of interest: Tom Gores, Beverly Hills, whose Platinum Equity owns the Union-Tribune, is number 153 at $2.4 billion. His brother Alec Gores, with whom he collaborates in some deals (not the U-T) is 238th at $1.7 billion. Ed Roski, who wants to build a NFL stadium in City of Industry, and probably woo the Chargers, is 170th at $2.1 billion.
