Forbes magazine has just published its annual list of the 100 best CEOs in Spain in 2022. After a year that was far from calm (see War, inflation, energy crisis…), top managers in our country were forced to look for new and creative ways to make their companies more resilient in the face of this increasingly uncertain future. That is why, for yet another year, Forbes recognizes those who have done the best.
And, of course, there is a prominent place for the food sector, one of the most adversely affected by challenges such as rising food prices and shopping baskets. Thus, executives such as Juan Roig, from Mercadona and other supermarket chains such as Carrefour, DIA or Makro, appear on the list. The CEOs of major brands such as Coca Cola, Mahou, Damm and Nestlé are also included in the ranking. In addition, there is special mention of some large hotel groups where the catering industry has a great weight as home to many prestigious restaurants. In fact, the Forbes list is led by Miguel Fluxá, of the Iberostar Group, who has been chosen as the best CEO of 2022, for his career at the head of this tourism giant.
