Carlos Slim

Carlos Slim is a Mexican businessman and philanthropist largely focused on the telecommunications industry. As of January 2009, he is the second richest person in the world with a net worth of around U.S. $60 billion through his holdings.

Slim has a substantial influence over the telecommunications industry in Mexico and much of Latin America as well. He controls Telefonos de Mexico (Telmex), Telcel and America Movil companies. Though he maintains an active involvement in his companies, his three sons Carlos Slim Domit, Marco Antonio Slim Domit and Patrick Slim Domit head them on a day-to-day basis.
