Ross Perot Was Unique

Ross Perot was a regular client back in the late 90’s.

While famous for his vast fortune and running for president during both the ’92 and ’96 elections, Ross is truly a nice, down to earth man. Ahead of his time, he founded Electronic Data Systems back in 1962 and grew that company until a $2.4 billion buyout by General Motors in 1984.

What I thought was so interesting about him, is that he used to request a crown Victoria. He did not like Lincoln town cars, he preferred something less fancy and he insisted on sitting up front with the driver. I doubt many billionaires are this humble.
