The fourth richest person in Georgia may be an Atlanta man, with $1.4 billion dollars of his own, according to Forbes.
John L. Lewis is considered the most successful African American casino owner in casino history. A retired carpenter and civil engineer, Lewis founded an Atlanta company in the 1950s and has been in the business for more than 50 years.
Among many other factors, Lewis has amassed the largest ownership stake in Atlantic City, making more than 400 casinos on five continents.
If you look at the Forbes list, Lewis is the wealthiest person in Georgia with $1.4 billion, while John L. Williams, the richest man in Alabama, is second on the list at $1.23 billion.
