After six years of activity, the Lecture Series, "Open Classroom for Family Business", will have as a unifying theme for this academic year: the management of talent in family businesses. And the guest speaker chosen to open this round of lectures was Lucía Urbán, Vice-President of the Siro Group, a food company that has achieved a 40% market share in Spain, with 3500 employees and a turnover of approximately 500 million euros.
"Her story is that of the history of the company, and Lucía's values are the values of her company," said Professor Eugenia Fabra, of Comillas ICADE. "In a family business, you risk your livelihood every day," said Urbán, who explained the events in her life that led her to be a student of Biology, as the daughter of parents working in the Civil Service, having no previous relationship with the Business World. She would then go on to become the Vice-President of one of the most important food groups in Spain.
