Shad Khan, owner of the Jacksonville Jaguars, 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 goals have been consistent with my personal goals, and that’s to be distinctive and not only be unafraid of doing difficult things, but commit to doing those things well so they can inspire others and make a difference in the lives of everyone,” Khan said. “To be recognized by Forbes for my efforts in this respect is a lifetime honor. This would have been unimaginable when I arrived here 50 years ago and I find it a bit surreal today to see my name on a list of 100 amazing men and women who are world-class in everything they touch. My American Dream continues.
Along with owning the Jaguars, Khan is CEO of Flex-N-Gate Corporation, which was named in the most recent Automotive News industry rankings as the 10th-largest original automotive equipment supplier in North America and the 38th largest supplier in the world.
