Like every year, the American magazine Forbes publishes its list of the richest people in the world. In 2021, reality TV star Kylie Jenner lost her title as the youngest billionaire on the planet at the expense of an 18-year-old German. As explained Business Insider Kevin David Lehmann inherited the fortune of his father, Guenther Lehmann, nearly 3.3 billion dollars (about 2.7 billion euros).
It now owns 50% of the shares of Dm-drogerie Markt, a German drugstore chain, leader in the sector in Europe with nearly 3,700 stores. Founded in 1974, it employs more than 41,000 people across Germany. According to Forbes, neither Guenther Lehmann nor his son (925th richest person in the world in 2021), very discreet, would not be directly involved in the company. Dm-drogerie Markt did not comment on this information, as did the Lehmann family.
