Founder of Zitro Games, Johnny Viveiros Ortiz, has received the Businessman of the Year award from Spain;s leading industry trade publication, the prestigious Azar Magazine.
A presentation gala at the Torrelodones Casino in Madrid saw Azar’s honorary Editor, Juan Manuel Ortega, present the award, which recognises the most outstanding personalities in the sector, and those who have contributed most to its development.
Juan Manuel Ortega commented: “Johnny Ortiz heads the panel of winners for his unsurpassed and successful dedication to his company in the difficult times of the pandemic that, despite bursting many of the corporate seams, has not been able to make a dent in his attitude and determination. Johnny Ortiz has never given up in the face of adversity, in addition to offering the industry his immense creativity in a line of extraordinary products that are hard to beat.”
Receiving his award, Johnny Ortiz responded: “I would like to thank my friends at Azar Magazine, and especially its Editor, Manolo, for this recognition. I have the honour of being at the head of a company, Zitro, that has a team whose work has never stopped, not even in the worst moments of our history. In the months when other companies were busy elsewhere, Zitro focused on investing and creating a new range of products, both cabinets and games, ready to be delivered as soon as the situation allowed. And that moment has arrived, thanks to our effort and courage. And, above all, thanks to my team, now our new products are shining all over the world.”
