The Greers are loaded but Terry Forcht has a whole lot more. Trust me on this I know. Terry owns places all over the state. Also, by being a billionaire, that doesn't mean you can go to ur local atm and it will show up 1 billion dollars in your account. The total sum of profit that all of his numerous businesses make is over 1 billion dollars. Terry himself is probably worth 4 or 500 million but his companies make him a billionaire.
Terry Forcht is not a billionair. The people at forbes make the billionaire list every year, they look at your investments, holding in companies, stock, investments, ect. I doubt there are many billionaires who actually have a billion in the bank. As I said before there are only 2 billionaires within 300 miles of here:

Carl Lindner Jr(cincinnati,ohio) net worth 2.3 billion-owns American Financial, Chiquita Brands(the banana people), Great American Insurance, United Dairy Farmers, 2 railroads, numerous 5-star hotels and resorts, recently sold the cincinnati reds, and a host of other multimillion to billion dollar companies.

Richard Farmer(cincinnati, ohio)-owns the Cintas corporation and was just added to the list this year with a net worth of 1 billion.

Terry Forcht is well off, but no one in SE Kentucky, probably not anyone in Kentucky beats the greers. The get all the highway work from Florida to Ohio, Missouri to Virginia and all the states in between.

I bet your wrong on that statement...Jim Rose from London, Elmer Whitaker from Hyden, the Duff family from Hazard, and a few others could all surpass "the Greers". Maybe if you added the Greers all together, they might be close to some of the above. This is my opinion only as none of these folks have publicly announced what their net worths are. More than likely, there are other low keyed people who are very comfortable too.

Fact Terry Forcht is the waelthiest man, Nelda Barton you guys left off the list. There is alot of money in our town. They have been here for years. Alot of rich poeple aren't a rich as you migh think.. they just have a lot of credit & debt...Forcht however you might think of him is the richest. We have had some that have been given the oppertunity and have lost it.. what a shame...

I googled Forcht Group and I agree Terry Forcht seems to be the one. I no it is not Donnie Hill. The man can't pay his bills. Ask anyone he owes in Corbin or anywhere. He might have some money for him and his family but not his business. His partner is a good guy. I feel sorry for him.

It is true that Forcht Group Banking Division has assets of 1.05 Billion. That is a huge number, but if they have $500 million in liability, it isn't as much. There was an individual on here that kept stating that Terry Fortch was a billionaire. That simply is not true yet. He may be one day, but you will not find him on the Forbes list. Corporate Assets are much different that personal wealth. It would be interesting to see how much Terry Forcht is worth if he "cashed out" or sold all his interest today to see what his personal wealth is...I would guess it would be north of 200 million.
