Tony Hsieh an American businessman has a net worth of $400 million. Tony Hsieh has built his net worth as CEO of online shoe and clothing shop; he was also a co-founder of LinkExchange, which is now owned by Microsoft. Hsieh is a graduate of Harvard University with a degree in Computer Science. In 2010 he wrote a book called Delivering Happiness, about his entrepreneurial endeavors.
