Sheldon G. Adelson Named One of The World’s 100 Greatest Living Business Minds

Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Las Vegas Sands and Sands China Ltd. Sheldon G. Adelson (https://www.forbes.com/100-greatest-business-minds/person/sheldon-adelson) is featured in Forbes magazine’s special centennial issue as one of The World’s 100 Greatest Living Business Minds.

In celebration of its 100th anniversary, Forbes magazine’s collector’s edition features essays, lessons and ideas for the next 100 years from today’s most influential business leaders around the world.

"My business career has spanned more than seven decades and more than 50 different businesses, and I’m proud for that work to be honored, especially with such a distinguished group of individuals. As an entrepreneur, I never thought about doing what was popular. Instead, I’ve always approached situations – whether in business or philanthropy – to look at how I could be transformative by challenging and changing the status quo. That’s been my mantra all of these years, and I’m honored that Forbes believes that my entrepreneurial ways are worthy of distinction,” said Mr. Adelson.

In developing the list of 100, Forbes sought people who had either created something with a lasting impact on the world or innovated in a way that transcends their given field.

“Our editorial team spent dozens of meetings over two years creating a list that speaks to a century of entrepreneurial capitalism,” said Forbes magazine editor Randall Lane. “These are the doers who have created, disrupted and innovated on a collectively historic scale. Honorees were required to actively participate in the project – all essays are original, wisdom from the list-makers themselves.”
