Noticeably missing this year is last year’s No. 1 ranked Wealthiest Angeleno, Elon Musk — for the simple reason that he no longer resides full time in Los Angeles.
Additionally, we’ve identified and highlighted the stories of a few of this year’s standouts: Evan Spiegel (youngest at age 31), George Joseph (oldest at age 99), Jose Feliciano and Behdad Eghbali (newcomers to the list) and Lynsi Snyder-Ellingson (youngest woman at age 39).
I want to extend a special thank you to Editor Scott Robson, Interim Editor Stephanie Barbaran, Research Director Joshua Niv, Production Director Nina Bays, and the entire editorial and production teams for their collaborative efforts and dedication to this special edition.
We look forward to next year’s list and to seeing how the numbers, industries and, of course, people change.
