Ken Behring


American real estate developer, animal hunter, and former owner of the National Football League's Seattle Seahawks, from 1988 to 1997. Behring was listed several times on the annual Forbes 400 list of richest Americans, and has been described in the press as a billionaire.

In 2004, Behring published a memoir, Road to Purpose: One Man's Journey Bringing Hope to Millions and Finding Purpose Along the Way. In 2013, he published a revised edition of the memoir, The Road to Leadership: Finding a Life of Purpose.
