Robert Kraft The Sports Guru

One of the most powerful and influential men in sports, Robert Kraft has been a pillar of the National Football League for more than three decades. He is the only person to have owned three Super Bowl-winning teams: The Patriots in 2001 and 2003, plus the New England Patriots’ parent club from 1994 to 2009.

A native of Boston, Robert Kraft spent time in business before becoming a sports executive. He began his career as an executive with the American Basketball Association and purchased the New England franchise in 1994. Three Super Bowl championships later and Kraft is considered one of the greatest owners in league history – a man who also has a net worth of over $3 billion.

With the Patriots, Kraft has historically dominated the AFC East, winning six division titles in eight years. In 2001, the Patriots finished with a 12-4 record – then their best mark since 1991. Two seasons later in 2003, New England finished as the first seed in the playoffs before ultimately capturing its fifth Super Bowl championship. In 2006 and 2007, he added to his list of achievements by winning two more Super Bowls.

Kraft is also a philanthropist. He was named the Outstanding Philanthropist of 2005 by Jefferson Awards and is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.

A recent report in Forbes stated that Robert Kraft has amassed his wealth through an investment group called Pilot Investments. According to the magazine, Kraft is one of three owners in the group, which began operations in 2004. The 29-year-old company focuses on investing in companies that are either growing quickly or have a product that has heavy consumer demand. The group’s core holdings include Atlas Air and NFI, both of which also happen to be publicly traded companies. Atlas Air offers both freight and passenger transportation services, while NFI is a distributor of fasteners, tools and accessories for construction.
