The 62nd richest person in the world, Charles Ergen, is one of the founders and chairman of EchoStar Communications Corporation and worth a whopping $10 Billion. EchoStar Communications Corporation the the parent company of the well known Dish Network and has million of subscribers. Originally from Oak Ridge, Tennessee, he is the son of a nuclear physicist, so needless to say brains ran in the family. He believed he was so smart, in fact, that he attempted card counting and was even thrown out of a casino in Vegas... I suppose he wasn't as successful at card counting as he was at founding companies. Dish Network was started in the 1980's, targeting rural area houses, where cable wasn't as easily accesible. Remember seeing huge dishes in front of peoples houses in random rural places like Colorado? Yeh, that was him. The dishes got smaller, but his net worth got bigger. I think they call that the inverse dish size to net worth rule.
Charles William Ergen better known as Charlie Ergen (born 1953) is the former co-founder, and Chairman of the Board, President and CEO of the Dish Network, formerly known as the EchoStar Communications Corporation. He stepped down in May 2011.
Charles Ergen was born in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, on March 1, 1953. He received a Bachelor of Arts the University of Tennessee at Knoxville, and an M.B.A. Wake Forest University. He was a blackjack and poker professional player.
In 1980, he founded EchoStar with his wife Cantey ("Candy"), and friend Jim DeFranco. He started selling satellite dishes door to door in Colorado. Both Cantey Ergen and Jim DeFranco still sit on EchoStar's eight-member board. He purchased Sling Media in 2008.
