CEO, Atlético de Madrid

Miguel Ángel Gil

Miguel Ángel studied veterinary previous to his appointment at Atlético de Madrid, something that not many people know. In 1992 he became General Director of the club, gradually ascending until his actual position as CEO and main shareholder.

During this period, Atlético de Madrid SAD, now officially one of the top three teams in La Liga fighting hand to hand with Barcelona and Real Madrid, managed to conquer La Liga twice, two UEFA Europea Leagues, two European Supercups, one Spanish Supercup, three Copa del Rey and a Copa de la Reina, in addition to reaching two UEFA Champion League finals against archenemy Real Madrid. Apart from the undisputable sporting achievements, Atlético has seen a massive increase in its equity as a result of the succesful strategic and consolidation plan implemented, and which will reach it’s peak with the construction of new home stadium and different head offices for its Academy.
