Pittsburgh residents on Forbes’ 2024 list of the world’s billionaires

Pittsburgh has a significant presence on Forbes’ annual list of the world’s billionaires. The 2024 list includes a total of 2,781 billionaires with a combined net worth of $14.2 trillion. Forbes calculated each person’s wealth using stock prices and exchange rates from March 8, 2024.

Four individuals with strong ties to the Steel City made it to the list: Maggie Hardy, Mark Cuban, David Tepper, and Thomas Tull and Ron Burkle. David Tepper ranked No. 94 with a net worth of $20.6 billion and is known for his success as one of the greatest hedge fund managers of his generation. He founded Appaloosa Management in 1993, owns the Carolina Panthers, and has roots in Pittsburgh’s Stanton Heights neighborhood.

Mark Cuban came in at No. 563 with a net worth of $5.4 billion and grew up in Mt. Lebanon before attending the University of Pittsburgh. He recently sold his majority stake in the Dallas Mavericks but remains an influential figure in Pittsburgh business circles.

Maggie Hardy holds a net worth of $4.1 billion as the owner and CEO of 84 Lumber, which she took over from her father after his passing away at age 100 years old in January 2023. Finally, Thomas Tull and Ron Burkle both have ties to Pittsburgh through their respective minority stakes in the Pittsburgh Steelers and Penguins, making them both prominent figures on this year’s list.

Together, these four individuals represent not only their own individual successes but also the wealth and success that Pittsburgh has brought to the global stage through its diverse business ventures and influential figures like these four individuals who have achieved greatness through hard work and determination.
