French businessman Emmanuel Besnier has a net worth of $7.1 billion as of September 2015 according to Forbes. He is called the “French Howard Hughes;” “the Emperor of Cheese,” and “the invisible billionaire” because of his disdain for the press. He now serves as the CEO of Lactalis the family’s dairy farm company, which is based in Laval, his ancestral hometown in western France. He and his brother, Jean Michael, and sister, Marie, inherited the company from their father, Michael, plus they possess 3% of the freely-traded business through a holding company. It is now the largest dairy producer in Europe and it continues to expand internationally.
