D. Miguel Fluxá
Founder and President
Miguel Fluxá Rosselló (Palma de Mallorca), began working at Viajes Iberia, a company acquired by his father Lorenzo Fluxà (1907-1993) in 1956, and turned it into one of the most important travel groups in Spain. In his extensive activity as a travel agent, receiving agent and tour operator, he stands out for having created one of the first Spanish tour operators, Iberojet in 1973, and for having created Sunworld in 1991, the first tour operator with Spanish capital in England, among other things.
In 1979, Miguel Fluxà started his hotel business in Spain. In 1986, he created the Iberostar brand and in 1993, he began its international expansion in the Dominican Republic. In 2006, Miguel Fluxà sold his travel group to an investment group to focus on the hotel division, Iberostar Hotels & Resorts, whose portfolio exceeds 100 4 and 5-star hotels in 16 countries around the world.
Sabina Fluxá has extensive experience in the tourism industry, innovative business and environmental, social, and governance (ESG) leadership. She is currently a member of the Board of Directors of the Family Business Institute, of the Regional Advisory Board of BBVA, and of the Governing Board of APD.
At present, the Group is an international reference in promoting a more responsible tourism business model that focuses on caring for people and the environment. As CEO of the Iberostar Group, Sabina Fluxà is leading the company’s transformation with innovation, digitalisation and talent as its catalysts.
