Rudolf Maag Net Worth

Rudolf Maag was born on August 17, 1922 in Binningen, Switzerland, Switzerland. Rudolf Maag, the son of a butcher, built a fortune in medical devices. He got an M.B.A. from Insead in 1973 and began working his way up the corporate ladder at pharmaceutical company Sandoz AG of Switzerland. Eventually he moved to dental giant Straumann, where in 1990 he bought out the company's medical device division and later took it public as Stratec Medical.
