100. Donald Trump (NR)
It’s a pretty impressive coup for NJBIZ to think the man running for leader of the free world is only good for the No. 100 spot on our list. Truth is, it’s impossible to truly rank Trump. But let’s be clear: He is a player here. And he already holds one of the most powerful jobs in the state — deciding who gets a membership at any of his three fabulous golf courses. “He gets to say, ‘OK, you can be a member,’” an insider said. “I mean, the membership committee is Donald.” And these memberships can bring big business. From what we hear, the clubhouses at these courses do as much business as any board room in the state. Of course, that’s just what we hear: Trump hasn’t said we can be a member yet.
