Upon his retirement as a professional tennis player, he became a businessman in Germany. In the 1980s he has starred in a TV ad for Miller Lite beer alongside Bob Uecker.

After communism fell in Romania, he established the first private bank in post-Communist Romania, among other businesses.

In 2005, a Romanian magazine estimated his net worth to be around $900 million.

Most of his money comes from enterprises like retail, insurance, auto leasing, auto dealerships, airlines, and many others.

In 2007 he became the first Romanian to enter Forbes’ List of billionaires, placing #840 in the world.
