Ecuador's richest man and the father of its newly elected president Daniel Noboa, banana baron Álvaro Noboa holds a net worth of almost $1 billion, and remains an active politician himself. He inherited the biggest plantation of Ecuador's cash crop and eventually became a successful politician, but could not secure the presidency despite several bids. Presently he runs the Noboa Group of Companies and also Noboa Corporation which has more than 128 companies in Ecuador and around the world. His son Daniel Noboa won the presidential election and fulfilled his father's dream of becoming the president. But all of that didn't come easy as Noboa had to go head to head with his siblings to acquire the business after his father's death. During the court battles that often got ugly, he was also accused of bribery and tactics that led to his father's early death. Noboa who had already made a fortune in real estate, won a 50.1% controlling stake in the fruit business in 2002.
