Carrie Perrodo Net Worth
Carrie Perrodo Net Worth: Carrie Perrodo is a French businesswoman who has a net worth of $11.7 billion, a fortune that she shares with her family. Today known as the widow of oil tycoon Hubert Perrodo, Singapore native Ka Yee (Carrie) Wong was already enjoying worldwide fame as a top model when she first encountered her husband-to-be Hubert in the 1970s. Shortly after the two met, they fell in love, got married and started to build an enormous wealth. Back then, Perrodo was traveling throughout the world drilling for oil and gas, while Carrie was thinking of launching her own modeling business. Thus, Perrodo established Perenco, an oil company, and Carrie set up an agency called Carrie's Models, which still operates although not under her lead. Carrie sold the agency years ago. As for Parenco, it remains in the family and has estimated annual revenues of $6 billion, as well as global far-flung operations in the likes of Gabon, Peru and Nigeria. The Perrodo couple led a life filled with riches and pleasures. A keen polo player and fine wine appreciator, Perrodo lost his life on a 2006 hiking expedition in the Alps. Even though it's not clear whether his real estate has finally been settled, the entire fortune is expected to be passed down to Carrie and their three children Francois, Nathalie and Bertrand. Perenco is now chaired by Francois, whereas Nathalie oversees the wine investments. In spite of being French nationals, the family runs the business from London.
