Full Bio

The frank and opinionated Kevin O’Leary is a judge on Shark Tank and one of North America’s leading business moguls. O’Leary’s track record in business success began with The Learning Company, a software development organization that he sold to Mattel for $3.7 billion, making it one of the largest tech deals in Canadian history. As an “eco-preneur,” O’Leary focuses on investments that make money while being environmentally friendly. He is also co-host for Discovery Channel’s Discovery Project Earth and is the author of the best-selling books Cold Hard Truth: On Business, Money & Life; Cold Hard Truth About Men, Women & Money; and Cold Hard Truth on Family, Kids & Money.

O’Leary’s track record in business gives him the force of authority. In 1993, with no money, he launched The Learning Company, which developed software that helped kids with reading and math. Six years later, he sold it to Mattel for 3.7 billion dollars, one of the largest tech deals in Canadian history. As an “Eco-preneur,” O’Leary specializes in investments that make money—and are environmentally friendly. In 2003, he co-founded Storage Now, Canada’s leading developer of climate controlled storage facilities; in 2007, it was acquired by In Storage REIT, for $110 million dollars. He is also the co-host for Discovery Channel’s Discovery Project Earth, which explores ways we can reverse global warming. He is the author of bestselling books Cold Hard Truth: On Business, Money & Life, Cold Hard Truth About Men, Women & Money, and Cold Hard Truth on Family, Kids & Money.

A shrewd investor, O’Leary is on the investment committee of Hamilton Trust, and on the strategic advisory board of Genstar capital, a $1.5-billion private equity firm. He received his MBA from the Richard Ivey School of Business at the University of Western Ontario and now serves on the Ivey executive board.
