Telling Fortunes

No. 35: Gerald J. Ford

Age: 69Home: DallasNet Worth: $1.9 billion

Gerald J. Ford values efficiency, which has served him well in his work: Ford and his skeleton crew of twelve employees buy distressed financial institutions, consolidate and streamline their operations, and sell them to larger banks. A native of Pampa, Ford graduated from Southern Methodist University (the football stadium bears his name). His wife, Kelli, and their 25,000-square-foot Highland Park mansion enjoyed fifteen minutes of ostentatious glory in 2012 when HGTV’s Million Dollar Rooms featured the couple’s basement “room”: a two-thousand-square-foot Turkish bath–style spa.
