World Wide Technology’s Steward debuts on ‘Forbes 400’ list

David Steward, World Wide Technology co-founder and chairman, has entered the rarified air of the 400 wealthiest Americans, according to Forbes.

Steward, who in 1990 teamed with Jim Kavanaugh to start World Wide Technology, a St. Louis-based information technology provider, today has a personal net worth of $3.4 billion, Forbes reports. That puts Steward at No. 232 in the Forbes 400, an annual list of the richest individuals in the U.S.

Steward is one of six Missourians on this year’s list, and he’s the lone newcomer of the state’s contingent.

Here’s the full list of Missourians to make the Forbes 400:

  • 58. Stan Kroenke, $8.5 billion
  • 64. Pauline MacMillan Keinath, $7.8 billion
  • 83. Ann Walton Kroenke, $6.5 billion
  • 109. Johnny Morris, $5.7 billion
