New Richest Man in the World

New Richest Man in the World

Christian Campay, Staff Writer

Over the years, many people have held the throne of “the richest person in the world”. Just in the last ten years, four different people have been granted this trophy.

In 2013, it was award to C. Slim; 2014 to 2017 it was Bill Gates; from 2018 to 2021 it was Jeff Bezos; in 2022 the person to amass the most amount of money, Elon musk when his net worth skyrocketed to 219 billion after Tesla stock surged.

But now with the Tesla stock down, the new richest person is Bernard Arnoult. He is worth about 187 billion. For years he has been floating around as one of the richest people in the world, and at one point he was the richest person in the world in 2019 and 2020, but not for a substantial amount of time.

Not much coverage and news goes on about Arnoult compared to Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos and Bill Gates. So who is Bernard Arnoult? He is the chairman and chief executive of LVMH Moet Hennessy – Louis Vuitton SE. This includes both Louis Vuitton and Hennesey. LVMH is an empire of all the great fashion and cosmetics companies. Arnoult oversees all of these companies.

He was very smart and strategic in how he set up his companies by combining both his alcohol and fashion companies. He also contributed his five children in all different parts of the company.

Bernard Arnoult doesn’t have the recognition he deserves when it comes to business. Some say it’s because he is older, isn’t into social media, or his business doesn’t have anything to do with the internet. But some other people say he keeps such a low radar so his businesses aren’t affected if he does or says something people that could cancel him.

Bernard Arnoult isn’t the average billionaire and with him being the richest person in the world people should know more about him.
