Antonio Brufau is named Business Leader of the Year for his contribution to consolidating Repsol as a major worldwide energy company, with a growing presence and recognition in the United States.
Repsol’s Chairman expressed his gratitude for the award and stressed the importance that the United States represents for Repsol, a country in which the company has flourished and reached successive exploratory successes in recent years, such as the significant oil discovery known as “León” in the Gulf of Mexico in October.
More than 300 people attended the award ceremony, representing the world of finance, business, politics, culture and social sectors from the United States and Spain, such as the Ambassador of Spain in the United States, Ramón Gil-Casares, the former Ambassador of the United States in Spain and the Chairman of the Chamber, Alan Solomont, among others.
The Business Leader of the Year award distinguishes business leaders who have made a significant contribution to the economic growth of Spain or the United States and to the improvement of business relations between both countries.
The United States represents almost 10% of Repsol’s total hydrocarbon production, which has its second largest corporative headquarters in Houston and employs more than 600 professionals in that country.
