Who is Amancio Ortega ?

Born in 1936 during the Spanish civil war, Ortega’s father earned 300 pesetas a month, a meagre salary.

Amancio Ortega’s biogragher described his memories of a childhood during which his family could not always afford enough food. He left school in his early teens, working his way up from the absolute bottom rung as a messenger boy in a shop.

It wasn’t until he was 40 years old that Amancio Ortega got around to setting up Zara, the fast-fashion retailer that has gone from strength to strength — first growing in Spain, then neighbouring Portugal and France, then London. Now it’s all over the globe.

According to Forbes, Ortega’s wealth rose by 5.3%, another $US4 billion, over the last 24 hours. That’s partly down to a surge in Inditex shares, the parent company that owns Zara.
