Graeme Samuel

Is a Jew from Melbourne and born into fairly modest circumstances. See Samuel makes it personal. He went into merchant banking, became the boss of Grant Samuel, rich  then walked away. He wanted power so he   became a Victorian Football League Commissioner in 1984 and the  chairman of Opera Australia which  resulted in the closure of Victoria's own opera company [ sounds good - Editor ].

He now runs the ACCC  [  Australian Competition and Consumer Commission  ] and has taken on his biggest target so far, one Richard Pratt, the third richest man in Oz - behind Kerry Packer and Frank Lowy, who is  also a Jew from Melbourne. This may not go down too well with others of his ilk.
