Maria Asuncion Aramburuzabala Net Worth
Maria Asuncion Aramburuzabala net worth: Maria Asuncion Aramburuzabala is a Mexican businesswoman who has a net worth of $5.1 billion. Maria, also known as "Mariasun," earned the tag "Mexico's beer queen" thanks to her inherited share in the maker of brews such as Corona and Negra Modelo. After her father, Paul Aramburuzabala Ocaranza, unexpectedly died in 1995, Mariasun made a liaison with her mother and sister Lucrecia, to fight against groups that were trying to take over control of the family's shares in Modelo. Being founded by Mariasun's grandfather in 1925, Negra Modelo was more than a brewery to them. Thus the three ladies established Tresalia ("tres aliadas" or three allies), and started investing in various prosperous sectors including technology infrastructure, telecommunications, real estate development and land reserves. In addition to Tresalia, she is also an active investor in leading Mexican companies through private equity and venture capital firms. Mariasun was the first woman to sit on the board of directors of the Mexican Stock Exchange in the period from 2003 to 2006. Furthermore, Mariasun is the president of the Councils of Tresalia Capital, KIO Networks and Network Abilia Universalia, as well as a member of the boards of Grupo Financiero Banamex and Tory Burch. As of March 2013, she is named the 6th richest person in Mexico.
