KING FELIPE VI will visit Almeria on October 29 to present the Kingdom of Spain prize.

The award, which was introduced six years ago by the Circulo de Empresarios (Business-owners’ Circle) with the endorsement of Spain’s royal family, “recognises and rewards the career of a leading businessperson.”

The prize this year goes to Franciso Martinez-Cosentino, president of Cantoria-based Grupo Cosentino who, together with his brothers founded the company in 1979.

Present in 40 countries, Grupo Cosentino now employs approximately 5,000 people and has an annual turnover of €1.1 billion.
