Bruce Toll, Toll Brothers & BET Investments

Bruce Toll is the co-founder of Toll Brothers, a Pennsylvania-based luxury homebuilder with properties across the United States. He retired from the Toll Brothers board last year and is now a principal at BET Investments, a real estate investment firm that owns, manages, and develops office buildings, retail complexes, and apartment buildings. Toll is a member of Mar-a-Lago. He told The New York Times that he owns a home near Mar-a-Lago and frequently interacts with Trump at the private club. According to The New York Times, “While [the two] did not discuss any of Mr. Toll’s specific projects, [Toll] said, the two would occasionally discuss national issues, such as Mr. Trump’s plans to increase spending on highways and other infrastructure projects. ‘Maybe you ought to do this or that,’ Mr. Toll said of the kind of advice that Mr. Trump got from club members.”

Eric Foss, Aramark

Eric Foss is the Chairman, President, and CEO of Aramark. Aramark is a prison profiteer corporation; it operates commissaries, laundry facilities, kitchens, and facility management for more than 500 prisons in the United States. Aramark’s Healthcare and Correctional Services Businesses generate approximately $2.4 billion in annual revenue. Earlier this year, Aramark won a three-year, $154 million food-procurement and management contract for 26 PA state correctional facilities. Aramark is therefore poised to profit from Trump’s promises to crack down on crime and “illegal immigration”– which translate into putting more people behind bars. Foss is also a member of the Business Roundtable, the Jamie Dimon- headed corporate trade group that is looking to re-make itself into an influential powerhouse in the Trump era in order to take full advantage of Trump’s “pro-business agenda.”

Address: 1101 Market Street, Aramark Global headquarters

Phone number: (937) 660-4708

Philip Rinaldi, Retired Chairman and CEO of Philadelphia Energy Solutions

Phil Rinaldi is the retired Chairman and CEO of Philadelphia Energy Solutions, the largest oil refining complex on the East Coast. For the last several years, he has also been the architect and public cheerleader of a plan to make Philadelphia an “energy hub,” vastly expanding dirty oil and gas infrastructure in the region. In October, he contributed the maximum amount of $5,000 to Trump’s transition fundraising committee, Trump for America.

Address: 1735 Market Street, 11th floor, Philadelphia Energy Solutions headquarters

Phone number: 215-339-1200

Joshua Harris, Apollo Global Management & The Philadelphia 76ers (Wells Fargo Center)

Joshua Harris is a billionaire Co-founder and Senior Managing Director of private equity giant Apollo Global Management. He also owns the Philadelphia 76ers. In March, he was among a handful of business leaders who met with Trump to discuss the President’s infrastructure plan, which private equity firms including Apollo stand to make enormous profits from. It seems the meeting (and Trump’s ongoing close relationships with private equity billionaires, including Stephen Schwarzman of Blackstone) is paying off for private equity; Trump’s tax plan maintains key tax loopholes for private equity firms and it is becoming increasingly clear that the Trump agenda of corporate de-regulation will enrich private equity billionaires including Harris.

Address: 3601 S Broad St, Wells Fargo Center

Phone number: (212) 515-3200
