General Information

Founding Year


Affiliated Interests Founder

Jesús Polanco was one of the most important businessman in Spain and at a certain point he was considered as one of the 250 richest men in the world, according to the Forbes magazine. Thanks to his small editorial and his connections with the totalitarian government of Francisco Franco, he accumulated sufficient capital to establish the daily newspaper El País and serve as his president. That daily was the beginning for the conglomerate Promotora de Informaciones Sociedad Anónima, or Grupo PRISA.
