Marcelo Claure’s success in the business world has been an unmitigated phenomenon. He immigrated from Bolivia to the United States and started his first business Bright star in 1997, selling mobile phones from the back of his car, and grew it to become the world’s largest global wireless distribution and services company and the largest Hispanic business in US history with revenues exceeding $10billion. As the former CEO of Sprint, Claure also led the US$195 billion merger between Sprint and T-Mobile that closed in 2020, creating what is now the most valuable telecommunications company in the world with a market cap of nearly US$200 billion. Marcelo Claure is also married with six children, and is still an avid football fan. So much so that he owns Club Bolívar, Bolivia’s largest professional soccer team.
