Born Leslie "Les" H. Wexner has an estimated net worth of $5.87 billion For years we have wondered what is Victoria’s Secret, but the answer lies just with one man-Leslie Wexner. Les is a self made billionaire and CEO of Limited Brands corporation. The company includes several brands like Express, Bath & Body Works, C. O. Bigelow, Henri Bendel, The White Barn Candle Company , Victoria’s Secret and many more. In 1952 his parents started selling women's clothes by offering fashionable separates which became a training ground for young Wexner. He began The Limited with $5,000 and a single apparel store in 1963 and by 1989 Wexner and his mother Bella were the first to make a $1 million personal donation to the United Way. Today, Limited Brands generates more than $10 billion in annual revenue. Wexner was born to Russian Jewish immigrants in Dayton, Ohio and even today he is honest with his Jewish values. In 1984 he started to make life changes as he established The Wexner Foundation to foster Jewish leadership. From his initial focus on women's sportswear, Wexner expanded The Limited into the realms of lacy bras and sexy lingerie with Victoria's Secret, sporting goods with Galyan's Trading Company, and soaps with Bath & Body Works. Originally, Wexner had his initial aspirations to become an architect. Leslie Wexner learned early on that he was not simply selling clothing, but desires and self-image which made him what he is today. Unlike others, he chooses to remain unmarried until he found the best match for himself. On 23 January 1993 Wexner, then 55 years of age, married Abigail S. Koppel, 31, a lawyer. The couple has four children now and they live in a 30 room mansion in Ohio that he built in 1990.
