Yes, you heard correctly. The workhorse behind Zara overtook Bill Gates on Friday and has now become the richest man in the entire world. Amancio Ortega, who was responsible for transforming clothing group Inditex to the world renowned brand that is Zara and other well known subsidiaries, was briefly named as the the richest man in the world. Well, that was before Microsoft’s share price increased by 10% and put Mr Gates back on top.

Despite losing first place to the Microsoft mogul, Ortega’s fortunes have been on the increase and will continue to rise due to his stakes and shares. This is impressive, especially when you take into account Ortega’s humble beginnings. Starting his professional career as a delivery boy, he was eventually able to set up a workshop which made garments which then transformed into the first ever Zara store in 1975.

So, the question is now, how long will Gates remain the richest man in the world? By the latter half of last Friday, Ortega was valued at $78.5 billion whilst Gates was valued at $79.3 billion. There is still room to gain first place position but in all honesty, with a work ethic like Amancio Ortega, anything is possible.
