CEO's and celebrities on Nantucket? You bet!

Real Estate Agent

By Brian-Logan Reid, Broker

I was in the Grand Union grocery store yesterday and saw Daphne Zuniga (remember Spaceballs!?), which got me thinking about all the VIP's that own property or frequent Nantucket.  So I thought it would be interesting to compile an unofficial list of the folks that I know that own "houses" or have visited the 'grey lady':

Current or previous owner's of Nantucket real estate:

Eric Schmidt - CEO - Google
Tommy Hilfiger - owner - Tommy Hilfiger Inc.
Jack Welch - former chairman/CEO - GE
Louis Gertsner - former chairman/CEO - IBM
John Kerry/Teresa Heinz - Senator/Heinz Corp. heir
Bob Wright - CEO - NBC Universal
Roger Penske - owner - Penske Corporation/Penske Racing
Michael Kittredge - owner - Yankee Candle
Arie (Coco) Kopleman - president - Chanel
Bill Belicheck - head coach - New England Patriots
Abigal Johnson - Fidelity Investments heir
Lee Iaoccoa - formerly of Chylser Corp.
Michael Egan - former chairman - Alamo Rent-A-Car
Kathy Lee Gifford - celebrity
Jerry & Ben Stiller - actors
Tim Russert - host - Meet the Press
Chris Matthews - host - Hardball
Paul Soros - businessman (brother of George Soros)

Others that have been to or frequent Nantucket:

Bill Clinton - former President
Laura Bush - current First Lady
Bill Gates - chairman - Microsoft
Warren Buffett - Berkshire Hathaway
Jim Carrey - actor
Sharon Stone - actress
Heather Graham - actress
Mike Tyson - boxer
Paul Giamatti - actor
Brian Williams - host - Nightly News
Katie Courac - host - CBS Evening News
Dr. Bob Arnot - chief medical correspondent - NBC
Herb Chambers - owner Herb Chambers (and his 197' yacht Excellence III)
Jimmy Buffett - musician

These are just the ones that I know...there are probably many others...
