American businessman and millionaire Les Wexner hails from Dayton, Ohio. He started Limited Brands (now Bath & Body Works, Inc.) in 1963 with a $5,000 loan from his aunt and built a massive retail conglomerate.

After founding The Limited, a clothing brand with a small but lavish variety of goods, Wexner built a corporate empire. In February 2020, Wexner announced that he would step down as CEO of L Brands and take on the position of chairman emeritus instead.

You shouldn't miss the three-part documentary series Victoria's Secret: Angels and Demons. Les Wexner, the former CEO of L Brands (Victoria's Secret & Co.'s previous parent company), and his role in the early years of Victoria's Secret are both explored in the first episode.

Is Les Wexner Still Alive Or Dead? 

Les Wexner is alive. He holds the position of Emeritus Chairman of Bath & Body Works, Inc.

He resides in a $47m Georgian-style mansion in New Albany, Ohio. He announced his resignation as CEO of Limited Brands and transitioned into chairman emeritus in February 2020.

Additionally, Wexner paid a private equity firm $525 million for most of Victoria's Secret. Today, he is valued at $5.6 billion by Forbes.

When Roy Raymond, the company's founder, sold Victoria's Secret to him in 1982, the modest San Francisco chain was on the verge of quitting the business. Wexner purchased the company for $1 million; by the time it reached its peak value of $7 billion.

According to The New York Times, Razek left in 2019 in response to criticism for allegedly fostering a culture of misogyny and harassment at Limited Brands.

Federal charges of sex trafficking of children in New York and Florida led to Epstein's arrest in July 2019. In August 2019, his body was discovered in his cell, and it was determined that he had committed suicide. Wexner has asserted that he was unaware of Epstein's crimes.

Epstein would pretend to be Victoria's Secret model recruiter, as mentioned in Victoria's Secret: Angels and Demons. In 1993, two senior executives informed Wexner of Epstein's conduct.

Reddit reports that a biography that appears to have been deleted from the Wexner Foundation website discloses that Harry Wexner became an eighth-grade language arts teacher, even though the Wexner children's personal life is kept private.

The children of Abigail also like horseback riding, although none of them have participated in professional competitions. The New Albany Classic, a day-long equestrian competition held at the Wexners' house and featuring riders competing for $125,000 in prizes, was originally foundevd by Mrs. Wexner.
