Mystery woman tops BRW’s Rich Women List: What we know of Vicky Teoh

On the BRW website, there is no picture of Vicky Teoh. This is despite her topping the magazine’s inaugural Rich Women List, released today, which features 30 self-made entrepreneurial women.

Malaysian-born Toeh, along with her husband David, came to Australia in 1986. Together they co-founded internet service provider TPG.The company’s share price has almost doubled in the past year from under $1.60 to just over $2.80.

This has done wonders for the fortune of the Toehs, who together own an 18% stake in the company. TPG remains very much a family business – David is CEO, while Shane, their son, joined the board last year. Vicky’s wealth has been estimated by BRW to be $390 million.

David’s done a few interviews, but he’s typically remained something of a mystery figure, like his wife. They must like their privacy. Despite being the holders of a huge and growing fortune, it’s very hard to find a picture of either of them online.
