KEVIN O’LEARY BIOGRAPHY

Kevin O’Leary is opinionated and ruthless, and he hungers for big deals. Yet he made millions helping children learn how to read. Nothing if not a polarizing force, Kevin O’Leary pulls no punches when it comes to the good, the bad, and the ugly as it pertains to markets and economic opportunities. A judge on Shark Tank, a contributor to CTV, and the author of the two bestselling books,  Cold Hard Truth: On Business, Money & Life and Cold Hard Truth on Men, Women, and Money. O’Leary is also previously well-known as the former co-host of The Lang & O’Leary Exchange and as a former panellist on the wildly popular program Dragons’ Den.

Kevin O’Leary was born to a middle-class family in 1954. The combination of Kevin’s mother’s family heritage as a merchant and his father’s Irish charisma truly meant that O’Leary was born for business. Kevin learned most of his business intuition from his mother. She taught him key business and financial insights from an early age: these became Kevin’s core philosophies and the pillars upon which he would one day build his empire.

O’Leary’s inescapable reputation has been built upon his entrepreneurial vision, investment smarts, and drive to succeed. In 1986, he co-founded SoftKey Software Products, and by the late 1990s, SoftKey had acquired numerous competitor companies, including Compton’s New Media, The Learning Company, Mindscape, and Broderbund. In 1999, the company was sold to the Mattel Toy Company for $3.7 billion—one of the largest deals in the consumer-software industry.

As a self-proclaimed “ecopreneur,” O’Leary focuses on environmentally friendly investments, which also make money (of course). He is the founding investor and director of Stream Global, and he owns and operates both O’Leary Funds and O’Leary Fine Wines. He is on the advisory board of Genstar Capital LLC; on the executive board of the Richard Ivey School of Business at the University of Western Ontario; a member of the investment committee of Boston’s Hamilton Trust; and an investor and director of EnGlobe.
