BIOGRAPHY

Guilherme Peirao Leal was born in Brazil. The bulk of Guilherme Peirao Leal's fortune comes from his 11% stake in Natura Cosmeticos, Brazilian company similar to Avon, which he joined in 1979. Leal played a key role in turning Natura into a multibillion-dollar business. Today he co-chairs the company along with fellow billionaire and Natura founder Antonio Luiz Seabra. Shares of Natura fell more than 20% in the past 12 months, partly due to an overall slump in the Brazilian stock market, reducing Leal's fortune by $600 million. Named Brazil's most sustainable company by Corporate Knights, Natura plans to open its first retail store sometime this year on Rua Oscar Freire, Brazil's most expensive shopping street. After graduating from business school Leal worked for a public company where he was fired for fighting corruption before beginning his career at Natura. He promotes biodiversity and sustainable business practices, co-founded the Ethos Institute and worked with the World Wildlife Fund of Brazil. He briefly resigned from Natura to run as the Green Party candidate for vice president in the 2010 Brazilian presidential election but he did not win. Leal is also the cofounder along with Seabra of Bresco, a Brazilian property-rental operation focused on industrial property, warehouses, offices and hotels.
