Chad Hurley Net Worth

Chad Hurley Net Worth $335 Million

With a reputation in the technology industry as the founder of YouTube, Chad Meredith Hurley has earned an impressive amount of wealth from his various business ventures. As a child, he grew up in the town of Birdsboro, Pennsylvania. Although he initially was interested in the arts, he quickly developed a fascination for computers and media while he was in school. After high school, he went on to get a degree in fine art from the Indiana University of Pennsylvania.

One of his first jobs was at the PayPal division of eBay. Although he performed well in the division, it was not the work that Chad Hurley was known for. After working at PayPal, Hurley stuck out with two of his colleagues to create YouTube. As they developed YouTube and MixBit, the websites became increasingly popular. Finally, Steve Chen and Chad Hurley sold YouTube for $1.65 Billion to Google. As soon as the sale was completed, Hurley was personally given 694,087 shares in Google as well as 41,232 shares that were put into trust. With the current prices for Google shares, his estimated net worth is now at $335 million. Although he is no longer the CEO of YouTube, he stills serves as an adviser to the current CEO.
