Three of the wealthiest billionaires in the country live in Los Altos Hills, according to The Forbes 400 Richest People in America list published last week.
Google Inc. co-founder Sergey Brin’s $16.7 billion net worth landed the 38-year-old the No. 15 spot on the list – highest among the local entrants.
Canadian-born Jeffrey Skoll, the first employee and later president of online auction site eBay, ranked 139th with a $2.7 billion net worth. Skoll, 46, has since left eBay but works actively with his production company (Participant Media), which makes films intended to inspire social change, according to Forbes.
Jerry Yang, co-founder of Yahoo Inc., registered a net worth of $1.1 billion, enough for 375th on the list.
Los Altos Hills resident John Chambers, CEO of Cisco Systems, didn’t quite make the top-400 list, even with a net worth of approximately $1 billion, Forbes reported.
