Anthony Pratt (AUS $4.3 billion)
Inherited Richard Pratt, his father’s, wealth, businesses and related opportunities.
Anthony Pratt is Chairman and CEO of Pratt Industries and Group Deputy Chairman of Visy Industries, the world’s largest privately-owned paper and packaging company.
Anthony's two sisters and their husbands work in the family business in Australia.
Visy Industries was founded in 1948 by Pratt's grandfather.
In an interview with Business Review Weekly, Pratt described the move to the US as an attempt to establish himself outside the shadow of his successful father. If this were a genuine attempt, he would have established himself without his inherited billions and inherited business contacts, starting from scratch like the rest of us.
