Hans Rausing is a Swedish businessman living in London with an estimated net worth of $6.5 billion dollars. Until 1996, Hans Rausing was the Managing Director of Tetra Laval, the largest packaging company in the world, which he and his brother inherited from their father. He also invests privately in Russian and Ukrainian concerns.
Hans Rausing, KBE, (born 25 March 1926) is a Swedish businessman based in the United Kingdom. He made his fortune from his co-inheritance of Tetra Pak (later Tetra Laval), a company founded by his father Ruben Rausing and currently the largest food packaging company in the world. In the Forbes ranking of the wealthiest people in the world, Rausing was ranked 83rd, with an estimated wealth of $US10 billion in 2011.
Rausing was born in 1926 as the second son to industrialist Ruben Rausing and his wife Elisabeth (n'ee Varenius). Rausing had two brothers, Gad and Sven.
Rausing studied Economics, Statistics and Russian at Lund University, graduating in 1948. In 1954, at the age of 28, Rausing was appointed Managing Director of Tetra Pak, while his brother Gad became Deputy Managing Director. Rausing retained this post until 1985, when he took over as Chairman of the Board. Rausing left Tetra Pak in 1993 and sold his 50% share of the company to Gad in 1995 in what was at the time called the largest private buyout ever in Europe.
Much of the enormous success of Tetra Pak in the 1970s and 1980s has been credited to the leadership of Hans and Gad Rausing, who literally took the company from a six-person family business to a global multi-national corporation. Over the course of his business career, Rausing became a specialist in Russian affairs and has made many private investments in both Russia and Ukraine. He was responsible for the Russian market within Tetra Pak, and negotiated the first Tetra Pak machine export to the then Soviet Union in 1959, eventually making Tetra Pak the largest foreign employer in Russia.
Since 1995, Hans Rausing has no remaining financial interests in the Tetra Laval group. He is currently a stakeholder in EcoLean, an environmentally friendly packaging company based in Sweden.
Hans Rausing and his wife M"arit have donated large sums to charities and research in the UK and Sweden, among others to large medical research projects at K
