The next Icahn generation

By Laurie Bennett

Although he regularly appears on various rich kid lists, the 33-year-old son of corporate raider Carl Icahn is not spending his time on the beach sipping mojitos.

Brett Icahn, who started working for his father in 2002, oversees a $3 billion portfolio. He has also moved onto several boards in which the elder Icahn has significant investments.

He is a director of Hain Celestial Group, Cadus Corporation, Motricity and Take-Two Interactive Software, maker of the video game “Grand Theft Auto.”

Like his father , Brett Icahn is a graduate of Princeton and a mean chess player.

“Yeah, he beats me at chess, which I don’t appreciate,” Carl Icahn told the New York Post. “I taught him the game and now he beats me at it.”

Complacent corporate boards should watch their backs.
