Aubrey McClendon Net Worth: Aubrey McClendon is the co-founder, retired CEO and former chairman of Chesapeake Energy who has a net worth of $500 million. Aubrey McClendon earned his net worth through his many financial investments, particularly as the co-founder of Chesapeake Energy Corp. Born Aubrey Kerr McClendon on July 14, 1959, in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, he played a key role in turning the company that he co-founded from scratch 30 years ago into the country's second-largest natural gas producer. A graduate from Duke University with a BA in history, McClendon started his first oil and natural gas investment company, Chesapeake Investments, in 1982 at the age of 23. Seven years later, he teamed up with Tom L. Ward in the foundation of Chesapeake Energy Corporation. The company, which is now the most active driller and "fracturer" in America, went public in 1993. One of the top 15 oil producers in the States, it currently employes around 12,000 people.
