Sir Peter Abeles
Sir Peter Emil Herbert Abeles, AC (1924-1999) was an Australian transportation magnate. A refugee from Hungary, he became one of the most powerful businessmen in Australia, and was knighted in 1972. wiki
"I think he certainly did exert influence. I think that he was involved in activities that otherwise would have got a lot more political, legal and media attention than they did. I'm thinking particularly of some corrupt activities that he was involved in in Australia involving the Transport Workers' Union and also his connections with the US Mafia when his company became involved in the trucking industry in the States in 1969." 
He established and chaired the Australian Cancer Research Foundation.
