MIAMI -- Former corporate raider Victor Posner, who once owned Arby's, Royal Crown Cola and Sharon Steel, died Monday of pneumonia at the Miami Heart Institute. He was 83. Posner, a Miami Beach financier and industrialist, was a fearsome corporate takeover artist in the 1960s, '70s and '80s whose empire was once valued at $4 billion. He was named the nation's top-paid chief executive by Business Week in 1985.
