Curt Engelhorn

Curt Engelhorn is a German businessman and according to Forbes he has a net worth of $6.6 billion. This figure is somewhat disputed and some feel that his net worth should be counted as $4 billion only as he has transferred around $2.6 billion to his children. Keeping aside this debate, Curt is the head of the pharmaceutical companies – Boehringer Manheim & DuPuy. He had led these companies for more than 3 ½ decades.
