DR. FRANCISCO GÓMEZ ANTÓN

Files under General | Feb 20th

embajador-isabel-catolicaThe Spanish government has honored our first president, Dr. Francisco
Gómez Antón, now living in Mexico, with the “Gran Encomienda de la
Orden de Isabel la Católica”, the highest distinction for individuals who have performed outstanding services to enhance the prosperity of Latin America.
 
Created by King Fernando VII in 1815, the medal was presented a
few days ago to Dr. Gomez Anton by the Spanish Ambassador in
Mexico, Carmelo Angulo Barturen (both in the picture).
 
Gomez Anton was INNOVATION’s first president, and is now our Honorary President. He is a professor of Law and Journalism, and one of the best known personalities among Latin American media.
 
For many years he was the driving force behind the University of Navarra’s Latin American Program (PGLA) which was Spain’s equivalent of  Harvard University’s Nieman Fellowship Program.
 
With almost 500 PGLA fellowship program graduates scattered throughout Latin America, many of them publishers and editors of the leading media companies in the region, Don Francisco richly deserved this honor.
 
Nobody in the last 40 years has done more for the training of Latin
American journalists than Gomez Anton.
 
So, all of us are very, very happy and proud of him, and his great
contribution to this profession.
 
Congratulations, Don Francisco!
