As the youngest daughter to the founder of the fast fashion company Zara, Marta Ortega Pérez is taking back control of the family business next April. For 15 years, she worked for Zara and started as a sales associate, working her way up. Now an official title and being a part of the board awaits her, continuing her family's legacy and contributing to the generational impact. Pérez has dedicated her life to her family and now she wants to build her parents' legacy.
Her father, Amancio Ortega founded Zara in 1975 with his wife in Spain. He stepped down in 2011 but he still remains as the company's majority shareholder with a 60% stake. His fortune of $73 billion makes him one of the wealthiest people in the world. Pérez is en route to becoming one of the most powerful women in fashion when she takes over the fashion empire.
The fruits of your labor will pay off! Stay persistent, remain consistent! Don't give up!
"You shall eat the fruit of the labor of your hands; you shall be blessed, and it shall be well with you." - Psalm 128:2
