Jerrold (Jerry) Perenchio (born December 20, 1930) is an American billionaire businessman and philanthropist. He is the former chairman and chief executive officer of Univision. Originally complete in 1935, the property which had been known for many years as the Kirkeby Estate, was used as the mansion in the American TV-series "The Beverly Hillbillies". In 1986, Perenchio purchased the property, which had long since fallen into disrepair, and began remodeling it to restore the original conception of the house as a Louis XV-style chateau. The work on the property took five years to complete, and has in the intervening years expanded through a series of purchases of the surrounding properties, to encompass an area of over 13 acres of land.
