Susanne Klatten : Personal Network 

Biography of Susanne Klatten 
Susanne Klatten (born Susanne Hanna Ursula Quandt on 28 April 1962 in Bad Homburg, Germany) is the daughter of Herbert and Johanna Quandt. As of March, 2014, her net worth is US$17.4 billion, and she is the richest woman in Germany and the 49th richest person in the world. This was followed by a course in marketing and management at the University of Buckingham, and an MBA from IMD in Lausanne specialising in advertising.

She gained further business experience in London with Dresdner Bank, the Munich branch of management consultants [& Company|McKinsey] and the bank Reuschel & Co.

Recognising that her wealth is sometimes a problem, she often worked incognito under the name Susanne Kant.

On her father's death she inherited his 50.1% stake in pharmaceutical and chemicals manufacturer Altana.

Personal life
Police prevented an attempt to kidnap her in 1978.

Susanne met Jan Klatten while she was doing an internship with BMW in Regensburg, where he worked as an engineer. During this time she called herself Kant and did not tell him who she was until they were sure about each other. They married in 1990 in Kitzbühel and live in Munich.

Affair and blackmail
On 31 October 2008 several European newspapers reported a blackmail plot against Susanne Klatten and the subsequent arrest of two men. Klatten was blackmailed in 2007 by Helg (Russak) Sgarbi, 44, a Swiss national who threatened to release intimate films of Klatten having an affair with one of the accused unless she paid him 14 million euros. Klatten contacted the German police in response to this threat. It was also reported that Klatten had previously paid 7.5 million euros to Sgarbi after he claimed his life was endangered by the mafia. his counsel stating that the accusations against him were essentially accurate. It was anticipated that by pleading guilty at an early stage his sentence would be reduced. He was sentenced to six years in jail which fell short of the nine years the prosecution sought. Sgarbi is not eligible for early release because he has not disclosed the location of money he received as part of his blackmail scheme. His accomplice, the Italian hotel owner Ernano Barretta, who allegedly filmed Sgarbi and Klatten with hidden cameras, is in custody in Italy.
