Born in 1963 in Madrid, Miguel Ángel Gil Marín, who joined Atlético de Madrid in 1993 as general manager, has been the CEO of our club since February 2002 and majority shareholder for the last 20 years. He is also currently first vice-president of LaLiga and a member of both the board of the European Club Association (ECA) - the only Spaniard alongside Jokin Aperribay - and the executive committee of this body - the only Spaniard on it.
