Billion-euro babe

STOCKING shelves in Zara may not be the kind of job you’d expect from Spain’s richest heiress, but Marta Ortega is no Paris Hilton.

Groomed to takeover Inditex Group from her self-made father, Amancio Ortega, hardworking Marta, 26, is set to inherit part of a 20-billion euro fortune.

But the dedicated employee has not used her powerful dad as an excuse to walk straight to the top.

Having started out on the bottom rung of the career ladder, Marta is slowly making her way through the company, and now works in the marketing department.

  1. Marta is slowly making her way through the company that is owned by her Father. I wonder if she will be made redundant? Hmm, methinks not. If this is not nepotism, what is?
