"His uncle, financier Peter Ackerman, had achieved fame and fortune as junk bond king Michael Milken's right-hand man prior to his downfall. The younger Mr. Ackerman wished to emulate his uncle's success. He made good on his promise, going on to spend eight years at Donaldson Lufkin & Jenrette, where he rose to vice president in charge of supermarket mergers. That experience became invaluable at Mr. Ackerman's next career turn, when in 1999 he turned entrepreneur and co-founded FreshDirect." [2]
