Pablo Isla, the same partner from the Institute and three children: This is the unknown and discreet leader who cemented the success of Inditex

The discretion is a brand of the house and Pablo island has been known to mimetize very well since Minute One. The still president of Inditex will leave the rudder to Marta Ortega, daughter Minor of the Founder, Amancio Ortega, next April 1. That day will leave behind ten years of leadership in which the company consolidated as the world reference of the Fashion Industry and the Forbes magazine chose him as the best CEO of a Spanish firm of the decade and in which, even though everyone The eyes have looked at him, he has managed to stay in that discreet background that marks the philosophy of the company.

Discreet and modest. This could be defined. He himself revealed this Tuesday, in appearance before the means to explain the changes in the company, that this whirlwind that has revolutionized the company and the IBEX 35 settled "with discretion, like everything in Inditex" and made the gala of that modesty that It characterizes by subtracting importance to its role in a company that even in the year of the pandemic closed with benefits and ensure that it is a "collective" success.

Law Degree from the Complutense University of Madrid and State Lawyer, Isla (Madrid, 1964) assumed the leaders of management in 2011, but is already in the company since 2005 and from that moment he moved with his family to Galicia. They settled in A Coruña and in the last 16 years they have fully integrated into life in the city, but without calling too much attention.

In this discretion, his life partner, María de la Vega Cabrera (Madrid, 1964), with whom he is married and has three children, Santiago, Cecilia and Bethlehem. For years, the largest is already installed in Madrid, but the rest of the family lives in a detached house in the urbanization of Icaria, in Oleiros, which stands out for being a dwelling of the heavy weights of the company. There he also has a house Eva Cárdenas, ancient responsible for Zara Home and a couple of the president of the Xunta de Galicia, Alberto Núñez Feijóo, although the couple now does not reside there.

María de la Vega was mimicked up with Inditex's reserved style as well as her husband and made good friends with the entire Ortega family, generating a personal bond beyond the professional who made him break his second usual level to accompany him in two fundamental moments From family history, burial in 2013 from Rosalía Mera, the first woman at Amancio Ortega, and the wedding of Marta Ortega and Carlos Torretta in 2018.

The Events of the Homes Casas Novas Club, which Amancio Ortega built so that Marta could practice her horses' horses, are another of his usual appointments, in which, in addition, it usually makes a simple and elegant style and be a Enviable ambassador of Inditex garments. There you can check that good chemistry with the whole family and with the second wife of the founder of Inditex and Mother of Marta, Flora Pérez.

As a mark Inditex, and its own parents, their three stems have inherited that reserved character. The whole family also enhances the privacy and family customs, running of the press, which take them to always pass Christmas in Cubas de la Sagra, a town in Madrid, and the summer in Mallorca, in a house in Canyamel, in a house in Canyamel, In the municipality of Capdepera.

The Isla-de la Vega family now faces a new personal and professional stage from which your usual reservation prevents from knowing details. The strip that Inditex has left will be complicated to overcome. And also the income. As president of the multinational, he has a fixed salary of 3.25 million euros since 2013, to which he must unite a variable remuneration that in 2020 added 2.53 million to his income and in 2019 also included another 643,000 euros in A payment through actions.

The couple has been together several decades, since they both studied at Madrid School Jesuit Our Lady of Remembrance. They both made COU for the branch of letters, but then they faced very different professional careers, she history of art and him right, both at the Complutense University.

In his early years of working life, both exercised in Madrid in the public sector. He went through the legal services of the Ministry of Transport, Tourism and Communications, the General Directorate of the State Service of the State and as a Spanish delegate to the United Nations Commission for the Unification of International Commercial Law. She also approved oppositions as a technician of civil administration and passed through the Ministry of Culture, was a general deputy director for the promotion of the Book and Chief of the Institutional Organization of the CSIC.

Island took the jump to the private company, first in the Popular Bank and then in Altadis (after a brief return to public administration as General Director of State Heritage) until a scouts signed for Inditex. That new step was an absolute twist for the family, who left the door of Iron Gate, north of Madrid, to move to Galicia; And also for María de la Vega, who asked for leave.

De La Vega focused on the care of three children (the third was born in Galicia), although without setting aside his artistic concerns and staying very active in the art world. Last week, without going further, his last work was presented, a book about the painter and sculptor Galician Antonio Murado, considered one of the Spanish painters with the greatest international projection, which he has exhibited in renowned galleries and artistic spaces of the United States, Holland, Belgium, Australia, Canada, Austria, Portugal, New Zealand or South America.

That artistic facet, which has taken her to the intimate circle of Murado and a long payroll of artists, has become past her children. El Mayor, Santiago (Madrid, 1994) studied ICADE, has that of his own group of music, Chelsea Boots, and in 2020 he published his novel, good night. His parents are behind all these concerns, fundamentally she on the musical shed and he in literary. Since 2017, the firstborn is also signed the blog rattle.
