10. Texas: Michael Dell

Michael Dell is the chairman, CEO, and the founder of Dell Inc. He has an estimated wealth of $19.2 billion. Dell procured his computer firm two years ago, since then he is telling about the merits of private ownership. In 2014, he wrote in a Wall Street Journal that “As a private company, Dell now has the freedom to take a long-term view… No more pulling R&D and growth investments to make in-quarter numbers. No more having a small group of vocal investors hijack the public perception of our strategy while we’re fully focused on building for the future.”
