Very few people actually know his name, but Spanish born Amacio Ortega is the second richest man in the world and first richest in his native, Spain. While you may not know his name per se, you’ll certainly know what he’s famous for. Founder of Zara, Ortega is the wealthiest retailer in the world.

Back in the day in 1963, he started out small, manufacturing textiles through his family’s small company. In ’75, he co-founded the now-famous Zara clothing chain with his ex-wife. His popularity and eye for fashion and high quality textiles at affordable prices won him fame in Spain, and in 1989 he opened up his first US-based flagship store. His empire quickly grew, and now he also has added Massimo Dutti and Pull&Bear to his list of successful clothing chains.
