These Are The Richest CEOs In The World For 2020

Jeff Bezos

Amazon founder and chief executive Jeff Bezos topped CEOWORLD magazine list of the richest CEOs in the world this year with $129,900 million. Bernard Arnault, the billionaire chief executive of the world’s biggest luxury goods company, LVMH, came in second with $106,300 million. In November, the French billionaire realized a long-held dream by clinching a $16 billion takeover of storied U.S. jeweler Tiffany’s.

Arnault briefly toppled Jeff Bezos to become the wealthiest person in the world. Now relegated back to the second richest in the world, Arnault remains the wealthiest person in Europe. Arnault is one of only 3 people ever to make it into the exclusive “centi-billionaires club,” along with Jeff Bezos and Bill Gates. Let us take a look at the richest CEOs in the world for 2020 as well as how much they’re worth.
