Bill Foley has roots all over the United States.
The Golden Knights' chairman and CEO spent most of his childhood in West Texas. His business career flourished in Jacksonville, Fla., where one of his primary non-hockey ventures, Fidelity National Financial, has been located.
The 72-year-old attended colleges in New York and the state of Washington, has wineries in Napa Valley and even spent part of his childhood in Canada, when his father was stationed in Ottawa with the U.S. Air Force.

For the past 20 years, Foley has also spent a significant amount of time in Montana.
With one of his primary residences in Whitefish, Mont., Foley, as well as anyone involved with the NHL, understands this region.
This is what has influenced Foley to believe that his NHL team, even though primarily belonging to the people of Las Vegas, could also become "the team of the Rockies."
The first major step in transforming Foley's belief from a notion into something notable came on Tuesday, when the team signed a television partnership with ROOT SPORTS Rocky Mountain.
Through this partnership, all Golden Knights games will have the opportunity to be watched locally by all of Nevada, Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Utah and portions of California and Arizona.
