Australian founder of Budget Rent a Car in 1965. Starting with just 3% of the market, he took control of Budget on 12/20/1974 and was the market leader by 1980.
Raised in Victoria, the son of Sir Reginald Ansett, Bob was raised in California after his parents divorced. He completed his education and married in the U.S., having three kids before he returned to Australia on 2/05/1965.
A business high-flyer, Ansett suffered heavy financial losses in the '80s, blaming poor judgment for having to declare bankruptcy and liquidation on 11/03/1989. His marriage dissolved in 1969 and in 1975, he married Josie Chadwick. In 1990 he formed Bob Ansett Marketing but four years later was charged with issuing a false prospectus for Budget. In 1996, he was traveling the Australian lecture circuit, discussing his business philosophies.
