Early Life 

Michael Bambang Hartono was born on the 2nd of October, 1939, in Kudus, in Central Java.

His father, Oei Wie Gwan, had purchased a small Kretek cigarette factory called Djarum Grammophon 1951 and renamed it to just Djarum.

In 1963, however, the factory burned down, and shortly thereafter, Oie Wie died, leaving Michael and his younger brother Robert Budi Hartono to inherit the factory.



The cigarette company grew under the two brothers, making its first export in 1972 and introducing new products. Today, the cigarette brand is one of Indonesia’s largest market share, with a 19 percent market share in 2012.

As the cigarette business continued to grow, the group began expanding to other fields, founding an electronics brand Polytron in 1975. The group also expanded into businesses like palm oil, papermaking, and communication towers.

Starting their entry into the banking business through Haga Bank and Hagakita Bank, the brothers under the Mauritius-registered corporation FarIndo Investments in a consortium with Farallon Capital took over 51.15% of Bank Central Asia in 2002, defeating other bidders despite making a lower offer.

Aside from the aforementioned businesses, the Djarum group also controls several shopping malls and buildings in Jakarta, including Grand Indonesia, Hotel Indonesia, and BCA Tower.

His company is also active in internet ventures, controlling e-commerce website Blibli.com and one of Indonesia’s largest online communities, Kaskus.

As of December 2022, Michael Hartono’s net worth is $11.5 Billion.
