|The party animal and the island-hopping hermit: Inside the lavish, secretive, post-Google lives of Sergey Brin and Larry Page.
After stepping down from Google in 2019, the tech titans — two of the richest men in the world — found themselves suddenly on their own, free of corporate oversight and shareholder demands.
So how have they used their newfound freedom? A look inside their worlds reveals two strikingly different empires.
Brin is a philanthropist who maintains a bustling social calendar — earlier this year, he swung by Burning Man — and has drawn tabloid attention for his recent divorce. Page shuns the spotlight and secretly runs a California farm that provides vegetables and herbs to a Michelin-starred restaurant.
Both enjoy the tropical life. Page has added to his portfolio of private islands in the Caribbean and South Pacific, while Brin has built an entire “Fly Fleet” of yachts, as it’s known in Brinworld.
And at their core, the former partners share a single overriding similarity: They rely on a tangled web of businesses to help minimize their tax obligations, protect them from liability, and shield their wealth from public view.
