Private Equity Goddess Lynn Tilton Tells You About A 'Seductive' Industry

Wall Street’s wild woman, Lynn Tilton, the founder of private equity firm Patriarch Partners, finds the aviation industry to be “seductive,” she told Kimz Hollywood List, “a positive only celebrity news website.” (Hmmm)

“Once you get into this industry you get seduced.  The flight represents the dream — just dreaming the dream.  You know freedom — Getting closer to a higher power all of those things are so seductive,” Tilton said during the Living Legends of Aviation event.

Tilton, who took over as CEO of MD Helicopters, said she doesn’t have her pilot’s licence. 

“I spend most of my time working you know with 120,000 employees and 76 companies.  I work 18 hours a day, seven days a week.”
