The Residents of Fisher Island

Tuesday, July 19, 2016

Despite the fact that it’s heavily private due to its relative inaccessibility and it maintains an aura of mystery, one thing that is Fisher Island very well known for is its residents. Celebrities and major public figures often choose the island because of its unrivaled privacy and among them is none other than billionaire philanthropist Oprah Winfrey.

Oprah Winfrey is one of the more recognizable names along with other famous celebrities like Academy Award winner Julia Roberts, tennis professionals Andre Agassi, Boris Becker, and Caroline Wozniacki, and retired Russian hockey player Pavel Bure.

There are also names that may perhaps be lesser known, but add to Fisher Island’s diversity. Alexander Mashkevitch is a Russian businessman and investor who was listed in the Forbes list of billionaires back in 2010. Barbara Becker is the ex-wife of Boris Becker and has worked as a model, designer, and actress. Part time resident Harold Ford Sr. is the first African-American to represent Tennessee in the U.S. Congress. The island is also home to many seasonal residents like American sports broadcaster Mike Fratello, Argentine talk show host Susana Giménez, and Canadian businessman Robert Herjavec. Herjavec is perhaps best known nowadays for his regular appearances on the Primetime Emmy Award-winning reality television series Shark Tank.
