What Is Stavros Niarchos III's Net Worth?

Stavros Niarchos III is a Greek professional kiteboarder and the heir to the Niarchos shipping fortune who has a net worth of $120 million. Stavros Niarchos III is the oldest grandchild born to Stavros Niarchos, who founded a massive shipping empire based in Greece. Stavros Niarchos I was the man who built the first supertankers, and the family fortune was largely built on his ships' popularity with the oil industry. The younger Mr. Niarchos became known for a string of high-profile relationships with celebrities such as Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, and Mary-Kate Olsen.

Early Life

Stavros Niarchos III was born on April 17, 1985, in New York City. Stavros primarily grew up in Paris, France, where he attended the Catholic private school College Stanislas de Paris. Niarchos spent his last year of high school at the prestigious prep school Seabury Hall in Maui, Hawaii, and he graduated from the University of Southern California Film School. Stavros is the son of Philip Niarchos and Victoria Guinness, and he has three siblings, Eugenie, Theodorakis, and Electra. Philip is the son of billionaire shipping tycoon Stavros Spyrou Niarchos and Eugenia Livanos, and Victoria is a member of the Guinness beer family.


The Niarchos family runs the Stavros Niarchos Foundation, which is described as "one of the world's leading private, international philanthropic organizations, making grants to nonprofit organizations in the areas of arts and culture, education, health and sports, and social welfare." The foundation was established in 1996 after Stavros Spyrou Niarchos died at the age of 86. The younger Stavros Niarchos funded Paddle8, an online art auction house, with gallerist David Zwirner, artist Damien Hirst, Jay Jopling of White Cube Gallery, and the venture capitalist firms Mousse Partners and Founder Collective. According to a 2015 "Forbes" article, Paddle8 was initially "seen as a virtual Christie's for contemporary art," then it expanded to include fashion accessories, movie memorabilia, and more. In 2014, Paddle8's sales revenue (more than $35 million) increased 146% over the previous year.
