Hanni Toosbuy Kasprzak Net Worth $2.7 Billion
Boasting of an impressive net worth of $2.7 billion, Hanni Toosbuy Kasprzak is the richest woman in Denmark and the fifth richest person in the country. She earned her impressive net worth due to her family’s business. Her late father created the shoe company, Ecco in 1963. Since that time, the business regularly sells $1.3 billion of products a year and is available in more than 90 countries.
In addition, these shoes are sold in over 1,000 stores around the globe. Hanni Toosbuy Kasprzak became involved with her father's company after she graduated from college. Her father wanted her to be skilled at every aspect of the company, so he had her work in every department.
After she learned the ropes in one department, she was moved to another until Kasprzak had a comprehensive understanding of the business. She briefly worked with the company in Germany before returning to Denmark to become the chairman in 1997. In addition to her work with Ecco, Hanni Toosbuy Kasprzak serves as the vice-chairman of Sydbank.
This bank is the fourth largest in Denmark and has a significant presence in the area. Outside of work, she is married to Dieter Kasprzak. Dieter Kasprzak worked as a chief designer at other shoe factories before he started working with Hanni. By 2004, he was appointed as president while Hanni Toosbuy Kasprzak serves as the owner and chairman.
