Dieter was a regular on the Billionaires List in the 1990s but was removed from the list after he claimed that he had transferred the ownership of Lidl to some foundation involved in charitable work. But he was re-instated in the list in 2013 after various researches showed that Dieter Schwarz Foundation had a charitable purpose, no doubt, but it was definitely not a charitable organization. Although the dividends are utilized for a number of charitable projects, Dieter has full and total control over his shares. 


The 29th richest person in the world is a very private person by nature and is not a great fan of publicity. He is actively involved with the Schwarz Foundation through which he supports daycare facilities and ensures proper education for all children. He is married and lives in Neckarsulm with his wife and 2 children.
