2017 was without doubt a huge year for Fluidra. Not only did we announce a merger with Zodiac, we were the listed company outside of the IBEX 35 with the top score in the Informe Report; Riiot Labs and Piscine Laghetto joined the group; and we installed the pools for the Asian Games in Jakarta. On top of all that, our executive president Eloi Planes was chosen one of the 50 best CEOs in Spain last year.
The announcement came from Forbes magazine which, after a rigorous study carried out with major business schools, investment banks, asset managers, and headhunters, included the Fluidra top executive in the compilation of the best managers of listed companies in Spain. Together with Planes, 40th on one of the most prestigious lists in the world, were business behemoths such as Florentino Pérez (ACS), Josu Jon Imaz (Repsol), and María Dolores Dancausa (Bankinter).
