The company supports charitable causes, including the Ronald McDonald House, March of Dimes and Miami Children’s hospital. Gold quit school at age 15 to try to be a professional tennis player. “Soon I found I was better with my words than I was with a racquet.”

EDUCATION The equivalent of high school in the U.K.
ALTERNATE CAREER? I would have loved to have been a lawyer, but I probably would have needed to have stayed in school for that!
STAYING FIT Badly. I spend way too many hours on planes and desperately need to do better at finding a balance!
FAVORITE VACATION I took my family to China and Japan a few years ago. It was a magnificent cultural and bonding experience.
