The mysterious billionaire is the richest tycoon

Thomas Bernacki is behind its creation. He is a mysterious billionaire who neither shines in salons nor is he pictured in the media. Recently, he took the first place in the list of the 100 richest Poles. The ranking was prepared for the 33rd time by the weekly “Wprost”. The mysterious billionaire can boast of assets worth more than 15 billion PLN. At least these are estimates. He debuted on Bierancki’s roster in 2017 and it only took him 5 years to climb to the top.
As for Bernacki’s lifestyle, he is not the only mysterious rich man in this type of rating. For years, Tadeusz Chmiel has been included in the world rankings. He is the founder of the well-known furniture company Black Red White. Also, hardly anyone knows what it looks like.
But Schmiel was never No. 1. And Bernacki became one. It outperformed the current leader of the arrangement – Zygmunt Solorz, owner of the Polsat Group. It also jumped above the owner of the chemical company Synthos and perhaps the most famous company Cersanit by Michał Sołowow.
