Two Australians of Greek heritage among list of richest women


The 2023 Rich Women List by the Australian Financial Review has been published and the names of two Australian women of Greek heritage are on it. They are Debbie Kepitis and Kayla Itsines.

49. Debbie Kepitis

The director of Ingham Property is placed at number 49 of the rich list with a $300 million fortune.

Debbie is the daughter of legendary racehorse owner-breeder Bob Ingham and is continuing her father’s legacy in business and racing.

64. Kayla Itsines

Fitness queen Kayla Itsines, who co-founded and later sold the Sweat fitness app, re-joins the rich list this year and stands at place 64 with a $165 million fortune.

Itsines and her ex-fiance Tobi Pearce became globally recognised when their workout e-book, Bikini-body Guide, shot to popularity in 2014 and soon after SWEAT was launched in 2015.

Itsines and Pearce continued in their existing roles at SWEAT with the company headquarters remaining in Adelaide, South Australia. Eventually they sold the app, which went into an $80 million loss in its first year under foreign ownership.
