Stephen M. Ross, owner
The real estate developer Ross' 2011 net worth was placed at $3.1 billion by Forbes. In February 2008, Ross bought 50 percent of the Miami Dolphin franchise, Dolphin Stadium and surrounding land from then-owner Wayne Huizenga for $550 million, with an agreement to later become the Dolphins' managing general partner. On January 20, 2009, in exchange for $1 billion more, Ross closed on the purchase of an additional 45 percent of the team from Wayne Huizenga.
