In 2016 it looked like the business woman’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, she was back on top. People With Money reports on Thursday (April 25) that De Fontenay is the highest-paid business woman in the world, pulling in an astonishing $82 million between March 2018 and March 2019, a nearly $50 million lead over her closest competition.
People With Money’s factors
In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.
The French business woman has an estimated net worth of $245 million. She owes her fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. She also owns several restaurants (the “Fat De Fontenay Burger” chain) in Paris, a Football Team (the “Longwy Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderde Fontenay - France), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Geneviève) and a fashion line called “Geneviève de Fontenay Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Geneviève fans, who have been waiting for her triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
