Forbes says there’s a new richest Idahoan, and he’s no small potatoes
Published at | Updated at
Forbes on Wednesday profiled “Idaho’s richest person,” Melaleuca CEO Frank VanderSloot of Idaho Falls, whose wealth the magazine estimates at $1.9 billion.
It’s an accolade that left VanderSloot with “mixed feelings” — one that he characterized Wednesday as the wrong measure of true value and worth and better bestowed on his company and the workers who built it.
The profile is part of Forbes’ annual compilation of each state’s richest resident. It’s Forbes’ third year compiling the list, which reflects the magazine’s estimate of each person’s wealth as of June 9.
