Wyatt Koch’s Favorite Things
Wyatt Ingraham Koch is an expert in the art of generosity. Son of billionaire oil baron and Palm Beach philanthropist Bill Koch, the Connecticut native moved to the island in 2006. Last year, he launched a line of Wyatt Ingraham dress shirts designed with vibrant, whimsical prints like lightning bolts and shamrocks and sold at boutiques around Palm Beach County. Following in his father’s altruistic footsteps, he donates a portion of his company’s profits to charity. When he’s not spending time at his Florida farm, he supports children’s causes and cancer organizations close to his heart, including Place of Hope, Boys & Girls Clubs, and the American Red Cross.
