About Sandra Ortega Mera
Spanish billionaire Sandra Ortega Mera has an estimated net worth of $8.12 billion in July 2017 according to Bloomberg. She is the daughter of the world’s fourth richest person and founder of the clothing giant Inditex, Amancio Ortega. In 2013, her mother, Rosalia Mera, died and Sandra inherited her fortune and got 89% of Rosp Corunna, the holding company where Mera used to invest her wealth.
Sandra is now Spain’s second richest person next to her father. Although she holds a stake in Inditex, she is not involved in company management. She spends her time in Fundación Paideia, the nonprofit organization started by her mother that supports vocational training for people with mental and physical disabilities. It also advocates their move into the mainstream jobs. She has a brother named Marcos who was born with cerebral palsy.
Ortega Mera graduated from the Universidad de Santiago and earned a degree in psychology. Together with her husband and three kids, they live a fiercely private life in the Galician town of La Coruña on the Atlantic coast.
