He has been credited as the man who has finally tamed the ultimate 2000s party icon Paris Hilton. So, why is Carter Reum such a catch? DailyMail.com takes a look into the life of the entrepreneur and venture capitalist that has stolen the heart of a hotel heiress…
He comes from a wealthy family, just like Paris
Carter’s father, the late tycoon W. Robert ‘Bob’ Reum, was the chairman, CEO and president of Chicago-based industrial firm Amsted Industries. The company is currently valued at $4billion, and Bob is said to have left behind $7million when he died in 2017 at the age of 74 and is also said to have had a significant property portfolio. Meanwhile, his sister Halle is married to Oliver Hammond, a scion of the extremely wealthy Annenberg family.
He’s an Ivy League graduate
Ivy League schools are considered to be the best in the country – and Carter received a B.A. in both Economics and Business/Managerial Economics from Columbia University in 2003, setting him on his road to success. His older brother Courtney and sister Halle also attended the same school.

He’s a well-respected entrepreneur
Carter’s net worth is estimated to be between $35million-$40 million, and while that is no match for Paris Hilton’s estimated $300million fortune – he has a promising career ahead. For the last four years in a row, he’s been recognized as one of Goldman Sachs’ Builders + Innovators Top 100 Most Intriguing Entrepreneur. He and his brother Courtney Reum co-founded their investment company M13, named after the brightest star constellation, after selling their spirits company VEEV in 2016. M13 has invested in over 125 companies including names like Lyft, Pinterest, SpaceX, and more.
He’s a private person without any relationship baggage
Unlike Paris, Carter is certainly not known to be a player in the celebrity dating pool. In fact, little is known about his relationship history leading up to meeting the heiress. He has never been married and does not appear to carry any other significant relationship baggage. When the duo were first linked, Carter is said to have shut down his personal Instagram account to protect his privacy.

He’s media savvy and has appeared on reality TV in the past
While Carter may be a private person, he’s also a media-savvy commentator who knows how to handle his public image. He has appeared on the business reality competition show Hatched with his brother Courtney. In 2018, Carter and Courtney released a self-help book for aspiring and seasoned entrepreneurs titled Shortcut Your Startup.
He’s accepting of his partner’s ‘imperfections’
When asked about any of Paris’s annoying habits, Carter said rather diplomatically that her ‘creative mind’ doesn’t always make for a clean or organized house. ‘Yeah, I’m not the most organized person in the world,’ Paris agreed. But Carter reasoned: ‘Yeah, I don’t think we’re gonna change that. I think we’re just gonna have to accept that. If that’s the only reason you’re not perfect, could be way worse.’
