38. Peter Huizenga
is the cousin of Wayne Huizenga, the kingpin behind the growth of Waste Management (WMX) and then Blockbuster Video.

In an article about WMX's late 90's problems; he is described as follows: There was one director with a considerable stake - Peter Huizenga, nephew of Wastes co-founder Wayne Huizenga. He owned over eight million shares. But, like management, his stake in the company was intimately bound up in its past. Peter Huizenga showed little aptitude or appetite for the tough choices required in a turnaround.

Found this on a Chinese universtity site :
