Map Shows the Richest Person in Colorado – I’ve Never Heard of Him

Maps are all the rage these days, and the latest is from the guys at It shows the richest person from each state and how much they are worth. Only thing is, the richest dude from our state, Colorado, is somebody I’ve never heard of. 

The reason I have never heard of Charles Ergen, the richest dude in Colorado is because I have cable… He is the is the co-founder and current Chairman of the Board, and former President and CEO of Dish Network and EchoStar Communications Corporation. He owns 52 per cent of Dish and Echostar shares and holds 88 per cent of its total voting power.

He lives in Littleton, in case you need a loan, and he likes to climb mountains and play poker.


Ergen is the richest in Colorado, but Washington resident and Microsoft founder Bill Gates’ $80 billion net worth makes him the richest person in the country. The least rich person on the map comes to us from Alaska, Robert Gillam, founder of McKinley Capital, an Alaska-based institutional investment firm… Poor guy’s only worth $700 million.
