Kulczyk heads list of richest Poles

With a net value of around PLN 16 billion (EUR 3.84 bln) serial entrepreneur Jan Kulczyk is once again Poland’s richest individual.

Kulczyk has regularly topped the list published yearly by the Wprost weekly.

“Business was brisk this last year for the richest Pole. The billionaire’s wealth has grown mainly due to the increase in the value of his stake in Ciech chemical, and the international brewer SAB Miller, which is listed in London. Kulczyk bought Ciech from the treasury last year for PLN 620 million. Today the company is worth PLN 1.5 billion,” Wprost said.

Polsat’s Zygmunt Solorz-Żak clinched second place with a net value of PLN 12.5 billion.

Wprost calls him “The biggest media mogul in this part of Europe.” Were it not for the giant PLN 14 billion loan for the purchase of the Plus mobile network operator, Solorz-Żak would be in the top league of billionaires worldwide, the weekly added.

In other places in the top ten riches people in Poland were:

Michał Sołowow – PLN 8.3 billion
Dariusz Miłek – PLN 5.3 billion
Leszek Czarnecki – PLN 5.2 billion
Grzegorz Jankilewicz – PLN 4.75 billion
Sławomir Smołikowski– PLN 4.75 billion
German Efromovich – PLN 3.52 billion
Jerzy Starak – PLN 3.1 billion
Grażyna Kulczyk – PLN 2.7 billion
