J. Christopher Reyes

Age: 60

Occupation: Cochairman, Reyes Holdings

When this publicity-shy Lake Forest billionaire isn’t overseeing the second-largest private company in Chicago—a $22 billion, 15,000-employee food and beverage distributorship he owns with younger brother Jude (No. 31)—he sets the course for Lurie Children’s Hospital, where he’s cochairman. Reyes has quietly forged valuable connections to other powerful Chicagoans through a slew of board memberships, including at the Museum of Science and Industry and Ronald McDonald House Charities, the philanthropic arm of one of his company’s largest customers.
