As of March 2018, Forbes estimated his net worth at US$2.3 billion.[2] In March 2019, Flohr had dropped off the billionaires list.[3]

Early life

Flohr was born in Switzerland on 17 March 1960,[4] the son of a teacher.[5] After school he applied unsuccessfully for flight training at Lufthansa's offices in Hamburg.[6] He studied business and political science at Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich.[7]

Career

From 1985[8][9] until the early 2000s, Flohr started his career in finance working for the Chicago-based leading technology firm Comdisco.[6][10] In 1995 he became president of their European division. In 1999, he was appointed by Comdisco as president of the worldwide asset finance division. He would later buy out most of Comdisco's European operations through his Swiss-based group Comprendium Investment, which he still controls.[11]

In 2003 he bought his first Bombardier Learjet 60.[12]

In 2016 Flohr, who spends over 800 hours in the air each year, was named Entrepreneur of the Year by The Living Legends of Aviation awards.[13]

Personal life

He lives in St. Moritz, Switzerland.[14] As a hobby he competes in motorsport, including the East African Safari Rally, Le Mans 24 Hour and the FIA World Endurance Championship; he is also a sponsor to the Scuderia Ferrari team.[15][16] He collects art, including Jeff Koons, Keith Haring and Sterling Ruby.[5]

Flohr was married to Katharina Flohr (née Konecny), formerly creative director of Fabergé and editor of Russian Vogue.[17][18] They have one daughter, Nina, who is a former brand director of VistaJet.[19][17] On 1 September 2020, the former Royal Household of Greece announced the formal engagement of Miss Flohr with Philippos, fifth child and third son of T.M. King Constantine II and Queen Anne-Marie of Greece.[citation needed]
