— The Forbes' list of richest Americans is out, and you can quit looking for your name now.

There's only one South Carolina resident on the list, and it's Anita Zucker of Charleston.

According to the Forbes' list, which came out Monday, the 61-year-old is worth $2.6 billion. That ranks her No. 209 on the list.

According to the Forbes' profile, Zucker is the CEO of InterTech Group — a maker of chemicals, fibers and aircraft parts. The company was founded by her late husband, Jerry, in 1982. He died in 2008. Her son, Jonathan, now serves as company president.

Zucker also owns the Carolina Ice Palace and half of the South Carolina Stingrays, a minor league hockey team.
