Pushing for change at Chesapeake Energy and Herbalife, battling head to head on CNBC with Bill Ackman... Carl Icahn isn't your run-of-the-mill senior citizen.
At age 76, Carl Icahn is still shaking up corporate boards, criticizing management and demanding board seats. His hedge fund was one of the top performers in 2011 and has a long-term track record of approximately 30% pa. His conglomerate, Icahn Enterprises, invests in rail cars, retail, gaming, energy and automotive. He insists that most public companies around the world are very inefficient and can be improved with the correct strategies. A Princeton drop out, he is now one of the longest standing and most successful corporate take- over artists in the world.
