Unicaja Banco will sponsor again the Business Family Prize in Castilla y Leon, granted yearly by this association

 

Unicaja Banco has renewed one more year its support to the activities developed by the EFCL Youth Forum, organization gathering the young members of business families of Castilla y Leon Family-Owned Business Association (EFCL, Empresa Familiar de Castilla y León).

 

Both institutions have entered into a new collaboration agreement under which Unicaja will be the main sponsor of the activities developed by EFCL Youth Forum and aimed at providing its members with a specialized qualification to lead the family business project.

 

The financial institution leading in Castilla y Leon renews its traditional link to this association of family-owned companies and its youth section, reaffirming its interest in fostering the business and entrepreneur fabric, to facilitate the economic boost and to support employment in the areas where it operates and, in particular, in Castilla y Leon.

 

The activities organized by the Forum with the sponsorship of Unicaja Banco include a comprehensive training programme with pioneering initiatives such as the “School of Shareholders”, to guide young members of business families in joining the company project with the best guarantee of success, and which will launch a new edition in September.

 

It also organizes meetings with renowned professionals of the economic and business world, and visits to companies and institutions, like the visit organized on 5 July to Volvo Cars in Goteborg (Sweden) to see the plant and manufacturing system of one of the most modern car factories in the world.

 

The members of EFCL Forum have also had the opportunity of meeting the cyclist Alberto Contador and other managers of important companies and institutions, such as Europac, The Navigator Company, Suanfarma, Cooperativa Unica or Círculo de Empresarios, as well as visiting the headquarters of Citigroup in London and of the European Investment Bank (EIB) in Luxembourg.

 

In addition to the agreement with EFCL Youth Forum, Unicaja Banco has entered into a new collaboration agreement with Castilla y Leon Family-Owned Business Association, under which it will sponsor, for the second consecutive year, the Business Family Prize in Castilla y Leon, granted yearly by the said association.

 

The Castilla y Leon Business Family Prize was created in 2001 by EFCL to recognize the business trajectory of a family-owned company from the region.

 

In 2018, the Sánchez family, founders and owner of Jamones Aljomar, received this prize, which is celebrating this year its 18th edition and will be granted in November.

 

Both agreements have been signed by Unicaja Banco Regional Manager in Valladolid, Manuel Rubio; by the president of EFCL, César Pontvianne; and by the president of EFCL Youth Forum, Francisco Iglesias Gil.

 

EFCL Youth Forum

 

With nearly one hundred members aged between 18 and 35, the EFCL Youth Forum activities seek to guide and provide information to the young members of Castilla y Leon business families who may have managerial or ownership duties in the companies associated to EFCL.

 

EFCL was established in 1997 with the aim of working to facilitate the continuity of the region’s family-owned businesses, and it currently gathers 160 leading family companies from all Castilla y Leon, with a joint turnover equivalent to 21% of the GDP of the Autonomous Region and employing 9% of the region’s private sector working population.
