Leonardo Del Vecchio  -  net worth USD 11 billion  -  Italy

Luxottica Group  -

Leonardo Del Vecchio is the founder of Luxottica, an Italian eyeglass manufacturer with more than 7,000 stores. Del Vecchio started making spectacle parts in the early sixties, but soon started selling eyeglass frames. He named his company Luxottica di Del Vecchio, later the company was renamed Luxottica S.p.A. In the 1970’s Luxottica sold the frames exclusively through wholesalers, but soon the company started selling the frames directly to the market, with the opening of branches and joint-ventures in key markets. The company grew quickly with several successful license deals, including Armani, Prada, Versace and Dolce & Gabbana sunglasses. Leonardo Del Vecchio acquired many successful brand names and retail companies, including Ray Ban and Sunglass Hut. According to the 2011 annual accounts, Luxottica realized EUR 6,2 billion of sales with a net profit of EUR 458 million. According to the same documents Leonardo Del Vecchio owns more than 300 million shares (66% of the share capital), with a value of more than USD 9 billion in July 2012. His part in the 2011 dividends of EUR 0,44 per share amounts to EUR 130 million. Giorgio Armani owns 23 million shares (5% of the share capital) worth USD 700 million. Del Vecchio’s yacht Moneikos was custom build at the Italian yard Codecasa. Before his current 62 meter yacht, he owned a 50 meter Codecasa also named Moneikos (now renamed Dakota).
