Top-100 Richest Slovenes According to the Manager Publication
For the third year in a row, the ranking of top-100 richest Slovenes, according to the Manager publication, is headed by the Login married couple, who are the main founders of the Outfit7 Company. They are followed by Joc Pečečnik (the Interblock Group). Tatjana and Albin Doberšek are on the third place of the ranking.
Last year, the wealth of the Outfit7 mobile applications developers Iza and Samo Login, according to the Manager, decreased by 18% and is estimated at 699 million euros.
Five other co-owners of the Outfit7 Company included into the ranking also experience a financial recession. The highest (4th) place among them is taken by Marko Pistotnik, who, according to unofficial data, possesses 211 million euros — 19% less than in 2015.
The ranking authors note that in 2016, they have first received complete information about the Company’s balance sheet, so they could assess the financial state of the founders more reliably.
Pečečnik Takes the Second Place, and the Doberšek Spouses Occupy the Third Place
The second place in the ranking is proved to be taken by the major shareholder of the Interblock casino equipment manufacturer—Joc Pečečnik. His fortune is estimated at 255 million euros, which is 6% more than in 2015, when Pečečnik was on the fourth place. Since 2007, the value of his assets increased by 176%. In all the previously published rankings, Pečečnik was one of the twenty richest Slovenes.
Tatjana and Albin Doberšek climbed from the last year’s 5th place to the third place this year. The couple are the founders of the German Engineering Doberšek family-owned company specializing in the turnkey design and construction of industrial objects. Their fortune is estimated at 222 million euros, which is 4% less than in 2015.
The fifth place in the ranking belongs to the founder of Studia Moderna Sandi Češko. Last year he was the second, and in 2011, 2012 and 2013 he headed the ranking. The Manager publication evaluates his property to 184 million euros, which is 32% less than last year.
