So far under his leadership of Rivian RJ Scaringe has been able to secure over a billion dollars of funding from Ford, Amazon, and Cox Auto. But I'm curious about how that has affected his own personal net worth. I can't seem to find any info on sites like Forbes about what his net worth could be. Does anyone have any ideas? It has to be in the tens of millions at the very least.

As of 7/6/21, Forbes is putting him at 3.4 billion USD. And here's a quick bio they include about him:
  • RJ Scaringe founded and runs privately owned electric car maker Rivian Automotive, which was valued by investors in early 2021 at $27.6 billion.
  • In 2009, Scaringe founded the car company that became Rivian Automotive with a goal to build vehicles that are rugged, luxurious and battery powered.
  • He debuted his first two vehicles, an SUV and a pickup truck, at the L.A. Auto Show in November 2018. They are expected to be produced in mid 2021.
  • He grew up in Melbourne, Florida, and has a doctorate in mechanical engineering from MIT's Sloan Automotive Lab.
  • A vegan, Scaringe plans to restore an old farm across from Rivian's assembly plant in Normal, Illinois, to provide fresh food for his employees

It's crazy to think he's #891 on their Billionaires list.
