Hobby Lobby Founder on Forbes Billionaire List

Many thanks to Mike Hartnett of CLN Online for sharing the following information with Scrapbook Update:

David Green, the CEO/Founder of Hobby Lobby, made the recently published annual list of Forbes World Billionaires. Green estimated worth came in at $3 billion, which put him tied for 316th with the likes of Steven Spielberg. The retail magnate placed higher than such legendary tycoons as Mark Cuban, Oprah Winfrey, and Donald Trump on the list.

Hobby Lobby has also been in the news for opening an employee health clinic at its Oklahoma City headquarters, another example of the sort of initiative that leads to its low employee turnover rates. Employees in the company’s health plan will receive free health care at the clinic, while other full-time employees will pay only $30 for an office visit.
