Last weekend the Sunday Times published its annual “Sunday Times richest 1000” in the United Kingdom. For the first time Harold Goddijn and Corinne Goddijn-Vigreux, two of the four founders of TomTom are making it to the list, and they are already in the 65th rank. Their wealth is estimated by the Sunday Times at £1 billion ($US2 billion). Each of them own 14.24% of the company. TomTom’s revenue climbed from €7.8 million to €1.3 billion in five years.
