Iñaki Gil

Iñaki Gil (Vitoria, 1958) holds a degree in Information Sciences from the University of Navarra. He worked as a journalist in the Basque Country, Catalonia and Madrid.

Founder of “El Mundo”, he directed the edition of this newspaper in the Basque Country and was deputy director for 19 years.
