Arthur Becker Net Worth $9 Million
Becker grew up in Bristol, Connecticut, before moving to Bennington, Vermont, and attending Bennington College from which he graduated in 1972, after which he spent some time in a Buddhist monastery before enrolling at Dartmouth College’s Amos Tuck School of Business Administration in Hanover, New Hampshire, where he deepened his knowledge. He really began his professional career in 1986, as a stockbroker for the Bear Stearns & Co. Inc. for which he later served as the director also, before leaving the company in 1993. One of his first business enterprises was owning two macadamia nut orchards in Hawaii in the late 1980s. Subsequently, Arthur founded ClearBlue Technologies, Inc., and these ventures provided the basis for Arthur Becker’s current net worth.
In the early 2000s, Arthur began buying smaller technology companies and investing in tech development, using his ClearBlue Technologies as a parent company and as an investment fund. After acquiring a controlling stake of the NaviSite, Inc., Becker became its president and CEO, and in the course of the next eight years managed to establish the company among the leaders of web and data hosting services, and application management firms. After stepping out from the chairman position but remaining active as a board member, Arthur is one of the people who arranged the Time Warner Cable’s acquiring of NaviSite for a total of $230 million. These enterprises certainly made an impact on the total of Arthur Becker’s wealth as well.
In 2012, Becker briefly served as the CEO and the chairman of the Zinio LLC, a digital magazine distribution service, before he became engaged in the real estate business. As a member of several real-estate giant companies such as the Property Markets Group, Ambase Corporation and the JDS Development Group, Arthur has been a quiet investor, primarily focused on New York City’s district of SoHo. All these endeavors have helped Arthur Becker to dramatically increase the size of his net worth.
Apart from all those already mentioned above, Becker is also the co-founder of the Atlantic Investors LLC and has also been serving as the managing board member of the Madison Technologies LLC. However, besides business, Arthur is also an avid art collector and a bit of an artist himself – he owns a collection of ancient African currencies, origami money figures and sculptures which he also occasionally creates. Doubtlessly, all these accomplishments have made a significant impact on the total of Arthur Becker’s wealth.
When it comes to his personal life, Becker was romantically connected to the acclaimed fashion designer Vera Wang. The two met back in the early 1980s, and after several years of “on-and-off” relationship eventually married in 1989. Before filing for an amicable separation in 2012, Arthur also served as the senior advisor for Vera’s fashion enterprise for seven years. They have welcomed two adopted daughters together.
