Who is Paris Hilton's husband Carter Reum?

Carter Milliken Reum is a 41-year-old author and entrepreneur from Chicago, Illinois. After graduating from Columbia University in 2003, Carter worked for the investment bank and financial services company Goldman Sachs for several years.

The 41-year-old's business ventures began when he and his brother, Courtney Reum, both left roles at Goldman Sachs in order to launch the alcohol company VEEV in 2007.

Within ten years, the two had successfully grown the company to be a nationwide success in the US. The brothers sold the company in 2016 as they moved their attention over to their newly established investment and brand development firm M13.

M13 has since become involved with over 50 different companies including Pinterest, SpaceX and Lyft. Married to hotel heiress Paris, Carter is no stranger to wealth himself, as his successful business ventures with his brother have given him an estimated net worth of over $40million.

In 2018, Paris' husband shared his entrepreneurial insights with the world when he published the book Shortcut Your Startup: Ten Ways to Speed Up Entrepreneurial Success. Again, keeping his successes linked to his family, Carter's book was co-authored with his brother.

While his wife Paris is about to release her latest book, Paris: The Memoir, in 2023, it is not known whether Carter has any future works planned.
