Cooper Hefner Net Worth

Cooper Hefner is an American businessman and writer. He is known to many as the youngest son of one and only Hugh Hefner. As of 2019, Cooper Hefner net worth is estimated to be $43 million.

Cooper was born on September 4, 1991, in Los Angeles, California to Hugh Hefner and Kimberley Conrad. He went to Ojai Valley School and then Chapman University where he earned his bachelor’s degree.

Hefner started working for Playboy Enterprises when he was in college. Until 2016, he was a board observer of the Enterprises but left the company due to disagreements with then CEO Scott Flanders about the direction the company was taking. After being walked out from the company, he began editing, writing, and publishing op-ed focused mainly on politics, culture, and philosophy.

In early 2016, Hefner launched the media startup company called “Hop” focused on content and social events for millennials. In mid-2016, he returned to Playboy and was named chief creative officer of the company when his father stepped down from the post.

Shortly after taking the prominent role in the company, Hefner announced nude images would return to the magazine stating that the problem had been the presentation of nude images rather than the nudity itself. Under his direction, the company also decided to feature Playboy’s first transgender playmate for its November issue.

With his return to the company, Playboy’s earnings for 2017 increased by more than 39%. Hefner developed strategic and lucrative partnerships to limit expenses at the company. On January 1, 2018, Wall Street Journal reported that the magazine has lost as much as $7 million annually in recent years. The same year, Hefner appeared on “The Folio: 100 list” for his contributions to the magazine industry as well as Forbes 30 Under 30 list.

In January 2019, Hefner took over as the chief of global partnerships for the Enterprises where he focused more on revenue and business development over content and media management. On April 12, 2019, Playboy Enterprises CEO Ben Kohn confirmed that Cooper would exit from his senior role to launch a media brand, the Hefner Media Corporation and a digital content platform called HefPost.

Regarding his personal life, Cooper is married to actress Scarlett Byrne. Hefner and Byrne both announced their marriage on their respective Instagram accounts. They got engaged in 2015.
