Olsen Twins Buy Out Their CEO

This article was written by in Consumer. 2 comments.

The Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are now twin queens of their media empire. Not bad for only 18. Apparently their attorney, who helped them build the Olsen Twin Empire and has been CEO of their company, agreed to let the twins take over their business if compensated, and in his own words he was, handsomely.

Joining her sister in a statement, Mary-Kate Olsen said: “We are very thankful that we are able to enjoy our college experience, run a business, and live our lives.”

Interesting fact:

The contract with Thorne was to end in 2012 so this is 7 years early!
