Wiki

Daniel M. Snyder (born November 23, 1965 in Silver Spring, Maryland) is the current owner of the Washington Redskins American football team, owner of the Dick Clark Productions television production company, and primary investor in Red Zebra Broadcasting, which is home to the Redskins Radio Network. Snyder has a net worth of $1.1 billion. He has presided over losing seasons in all but three years of his ownership of the Redskins, as well as multiple coaching and quarterback changes.

Snyder’s father was a writer who wrote for United Press International and National Geographic, and he was raised and schooled mostly in nearby Maryland. Snyder took his first job at B. Dalton Bookseller at the age of 14.

At 17, Snyder experienced his first business failure when he partnered with his father to sell bus-trip packages to Washington Capitals fans to see their hockey team play in Philadelphia. He was disappointed when he found his fliers littering the streets after a tough loss.
