Johann serves as Chairman of Richemont, Swiss -based luxury-goods company, as well as of Remgro, South Africa-based company. However, Rupert's wealth has grown an astonishing 30% recently, after he upgraded fortunes of his Swiss-based luxury goods outfit, Compagnie Financiere Richemont. From year to year his stock in Richemont has jumped more than 50%. In 2012, Rupert stepped down as company's CEO, being replaced by co-CEOs Richard Lepeu and Bernard Fornas. However, his fortune continued to swell thanks to his stakes Remgro and Reinet. This successful businessman is married with three children and spends most of his free time on the golf course, since he is an avid golf player.
Johann Peter Rupert (born 1 June 1950) is the eldest son of the late South African business tycoon Anton Rupert and his wife Huberte Rupert. He is the chairman of the Swiss-based luxury-goods company Richemont as well as of the South Africa-based company Remgro.
