George Shinn (born May 11, 1941) is the former owner of the Charlotte/New Orleans Hornets as well the Charlotte Knights and Gastonia Rangers minor league baseball teams along with the Raleigha??Durham Skyhawks of the World League of American Football. He purchased the Hornets for $32,500,000 in 1987. In 1997, he lost his bid for a National Hockey League expansion franchise to be called the Hampton Roads Rhinos.

Shinn was born in Kannapolis, North Carolina and was a poor student growing up, graduating last in his high school class of 293 from A. L. Brown High School. He went on to Evans Business College in Concord, North Carolina.
Shinn worked in a textile mill, a car wash and as a school janitor. Upon graduating from Evans, he raised money and bought the school and other small colleges that offered 18-24 month programs, consolidating them all under the umbrella company Rutledge Education Systems. He sold the schools and bought the basketball team with the proceeds.
The George Shinn Foundation was founded in 1973. Its mission was to provide need-based scholarships for deserving students. In 2011, George and his wife, Denise, moved the family and the foundation to Nashville. Today, Foundation funds are used to educate others on the importance of early testing and diagnosis of prostate cancer (Shinn is a prostate cancer survivor). Other Foundation initiatives include the establishment and support program for students at Fruitland Baptist Bible Institute in Hendersonville, North Carolina, which prepares students for ministry and assisting with an ongoing school/orphanage/church project in the Port-au- Prince suburb of Tabarre, Haiti. In 2012, the George Shinn Foundation was able to provide funding to complete a multi-story medical clinic, which will provide medical care to the community surrounding the Amer-Haitian Bon Zami House of Hope.
