Description:
George Henry Vanderbilt Cecil (born February 27, 1925) is the owner and operator of Biltmore Farms. He is the first of two sons born to John Francis Amherst Cecil (1890–1954) and Cornelia Stuyvesant Vanderbilt (1900–1976) and is the grandson of George Washington Vanderbilt II, the founder of the Biltmore Estate. He was educated in Europe and served in the Royal Navy during World War II. Upon the death of his mother, Cornelia Stuyvesant Vanderbilt, George, as the oldest son, was given the choice of taking over Biltmore Farms (the family dairy) or the Estate. Leaving the Estate for his brother William Amherst Vanderbilt Cecil, George chose to take ownership of Biltmore Farms which, at the time, was much more profitable. George has continued to grow Biltmore Farms, transforming it into a profitable real estate business that serves the Asheville area.

He has a distinct legacy as a direct descendant of both William Henry Vanderbilt and, on his father's side, William Cecil, the chief adviser to Queen Elizabeth I in the sixteenth century.
