“I love working with a family team [and]


the broader family as a whole, meaning all the people that work in the hotels. As you all know, hospitality is very much a people business, and I do what I love so I am very lucky and very honoured for this award.” In a first for the awards, the Top Family


Business Leader was awarded to not one, but two recipients: Matthieu Leclercq, chairman of Decathlon and son of founder Michel Leclercq, and Gabriel Escarrer Jaume, executive vice president and chief executive of Meliá Hotels International and son of founder Gabriel Escarrer. Leclercq said he was pleased to receive

inspired by the testimonies of speakers during the European Families in Business Conference, the first day held before the awards. “I have not had the opportunity to be


in a community like yours that brings so many entrepreneurs of the same background. It has been really inspiring to hear all of your stories and I hope as a first-generation business owner I can follow in your footsteps, your fathers’ and your grandfathers’ footsteps and make the difference that you all have made in many people’s lives.” The award for Top Family Business


Rising Star was presented to Lydia Forte, the second-generation member of the Forte family and the group director of food and beverage at Rocco Forte Hotels. She said the hospitality group was the


epitome of a family business. “My father’s the chief executive, my aunt


does all the interior design and is also on the board, my brother and my sister also work in the business. As such, I’m very much part of a team and I could not have done any of this without any of them. “Huge thanks for the support and


expertise from my father, as well as from my aunt, but also for having my brother and sister to be able to bounce ideas off of and understand that my ideas are not just mine, but maybe they represent the perspective of the next generation as well.

the leadership award because there was a big difference between being a manager and being a leader. “I think managing is about incremental


changes, making things better, and leadership is about changing the status quo and changing the organisation, and that is where we are in the world. I receive [the award] as an encouragement to keep the change, keep the path, and make sure Decathlon will be here in the next 40 years, trying to make sports accessible for the many.” Escarrer was unable to attend the


ceremony, but José Gras, operations director for regional Spain at Meliá Hotels International, accepted the award on his behalf. “Gabriel Escarrer Jaume is leading the


company as chief executive and executive vice president, so he is an example of a well-planned generation pass over from his father, Gabriel Escarrer, who founded the company in 1956,” Gras told the audience. Jaume “is leading the revitalisation


process at the company and he is really making the company change in these last years in a way that is making us all very proud. We recognise how a well- structured board, together with family values, are making the company each year a little stronger.” The winner of the Top Non-Family


Director Award was Pablo Isla, chief executive of Inditex, the world’s largest clothes retailer by sales since 2005.
