Guy Lalibert'e, OC CQ (born September 2, 1959) is a Canadian entrepreneur, philanthropist, poker player, space tourist and the current CEO of Cirque du Soleil. With an estimated net worth of US$2.6 billion (as of March 2012), Lalibert'e was ranked by Forbes as the 11th wealthiest Canadian and 459th in the world.
Starting out busking as an accordion player, stiltwalker and fire-eater, in 1984 Lalibert'e founded Cirque du Soleil, a Canadian circus company whose shows have since been seen by more than 90 million people worldwide. In 2006, Lalibert'e was named the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year.
Lalibert'e was born in 1959 in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada. His interest in show business began at a relatively young age. His parents took him to watch the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus, an experience which led Lalibert'e to read the biography of P. T. Barnum. While in school, Guy produced several performing arts events. After school, he entered the world of street performance, playing the harmonica and accordion on the streets of Quebec. Lalibert'e joined a performing troupe that included fire-breathers, jugglers, and acrobats who hitched around the country from show to show. He later returned to Quebec, where he attempted to keep a steady full-time job at a hydroelectric dam. However, soon after his employment began, the company's employees went on strike. Lalibert'e took the opportunity to return to his life as a street performer.
Guy Lalibert'e founded Quebec's first internationally renowned circus with the support of a small group of colleagues. He recognized and cultivated the talents of the buskers from the F^ete foraine de Baie-Saint-Paul and created Cirque du Soleil in 1984 with the support of a government grant for Canada's 450th anniversary celebrations. Cirque du Soleil was originally set up as a one-year project. However, the government of Quebec wanted a touring event that would perform in other provinces.
