Erik Prince is best known as the founder of Blackwater, a company renamed multiple times to try to escape its unenviable reputation.
Erik Prince, billionaire founder of Academi, is brother of billionaire Betsy DeVos. During the active years as CEO of Blackwater (XE) and other companies that were related, he was reported to be "very tight with top agency officials", carrying a 'green badge' that allows contractors to access CIA installations and being in Langley regularly to meet with senior people in the Directorate of Operations (running covert operations).
