Christopher Burch Net Worth: Christopher Burch is an American entrepreneur who has a net worth of $1 billion. Active in the lifestyle brand and retail sectors, Mr. Burch generated his wealth most notably through the fashion powerhouse Tory Burch. Christopher is the founder and CEO of Burch Creative Capital, an investment firm through which he controls a wide portfolio of fashion and technology companies. With offices in New York City and Shanghai, the company holds a 15 percent stake in Tory Burch LLC, the New York-based luxe-bohemian womenswear retailer owned and managed by his ex-wife, designer Tory Burch. Once co-chair of Tory Burch LLC, Christopher ended every connection with his ex's business in 2012 following the 2011 launch of C. Wonder, a preppy clothing chain bearing a striking resemblance to Tory's multi-billion dollar brand, but at a much cheaper price. Actually, he still kept almost a third of the company's shares until his December sale, which values Tory Burch LLC at well over $3 billion. Also, he went on to sell a 10% of C. Wonder to Fidelity Investments for $35 million in 2013, making his net worth sell further. When it comes to his other business interests, they include investments in phone gadget manufacturer Aliph; pricey Norwegian artesian bottled water brand Voss and wireless charging outfit Powermat. Divorced and a father of six, Christopher Burch currently resides in New York City.
J. Christopher Burch (born March 28, 1953) is an entrepreneur active in the lifestyle brand and retail sectors. He is the founder and CEO of Burch Creative Capital, a firm with offices in New York City and Shanghai that manages venture investments and brand development and co-founder of Tory Burch LLC along with his ex-wife fashion designer Tory Burch.

Burch was raised in Wayne, Pennsylvania, in a middle-class family. His mother Robin Sinkler, an Episcopalian, was from a Philadelphia Main Line family and his father, John Walter Burch, a Roman Catholic, was one of 10 kids born to a middle-class Baltimore family. His father owned a distributor of mining equipment and supplies.
Christopher Burch was an entrepreneur and investor in the fashion industry and in real estate. He became a billionaire in 2012, with Forbes Magazine's profile of him in its annual The World's Billionaires stating that the 2012 valuation of Burch's majority stake in C. Wonder pushed his net worth over the ten figure mark. In addition to his personal investments, he was an investor with the Guggenheim Partners.
In 1976, while an undergraduate at Ithaca College, Burch and his brother Robert started Eagle???s Eye apparel with a $2,000 investment. The two bought the sweaters for $10 each and then sold them for $15. Burch noticed that the students around him were constantly wearing "preppy" sweaters, and decided to find a factory to produce a new brand so that he could sell them door-to-door on campus. His operation soon expanded to other campuses, where at first he sold them on his own, and later he hired employees nationally. Eventually, he sold them through retails stores. The name of the company was an homage to their father, whose nickname was Eagle. Over the next decade, the company expanded to $140 million in sales and a national distribution footprint, including more than 50 of its own retail stores. The company was partially sold to Swire Group, in 1989, and entirely, in 1998
