Carlos Slim Helú is a businessperson who founded Teléfonos de México SAB de CV and Inversora Bursátil SA de CV and who has been the head of 13 different companies.

He holds the position of Chairman at Minera Frisco SAB de CV, Chairman at Instituto Carlos Slim de la Educación, A.C., Chairman for Promotora del Desarrollo de América Latina SA de CV and Chairman for América Telecom SA de CV.

He is also Chairman at Fundación Telmex AC, Chairman of Fundación Carlos Slim Helú AC and Chairman at Telemex Foundation AC and on the board of 8 other companies.

In the past he was Chairman for Carso Global Telecom SAB de CV, President at Asociación Mexicana de Intermediarios Bursátiles AC, President for Bolsa Mexicana de Valores SAB de CV, Chairman of Carso Infraestructura y Construcciones SA de CV and Chairman at Teléfonos de México SAB de CV.

Mr. Slim Helú received an undergraduate degree from Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México.

According to Forbes, Carlos Slim was in March 2010 the richest man in the world with a fortune estimated at $ 53.5 billion. He is ranked before Bill Gates and Warren Buffett.

In 2007, Carlos Slim pledged to make available to destitute Mexicans one million of computers, almost 51 million euros in order to give them access to new technologies.
"I think one of the big errors people are making right now is thinking that old-style businesses will be obsolete, when actually they will be an important part of this new civilization. Some retail groups are introducing e-commerce and think that the "bricks" are no longer useful. But they will continue to be important."
