Described by The Guardian as “the greatest European journalist of the past 25 years,” Pedro J. Ramírez is an undisputed guiding light in journalism in the Spanish language. His career is key to understanding the development of the media in Spain since its transition to democracy and the process of digital transformation of the press.

He was founder and director of the daily El Mundo (1989-2014) and after leaving Spain’s second best-selling newspaper, began a new online reporting project, El Español, of which he is director. It is the third time he has headed up a newspaper. At only 28 years old he was appointed director of Diario 16 and in nine years (1980-1989) was able to boost its circulation from 15,000 to 150,000 copies per day.

As a result of founding El Mundo he became one of the most influential figures in Spanish politics and journalism. In 1993, he was named as one of the Two Hundred Global Leaders for Tomorrow by the World Economic Forum.

He turned elmundo.es into one of the five most visited websites in the world and the leading Spanish language news provider on the Internet. It has also received more awards from the Society of Newspaper Design than any other Spanish newspaper.

His track record in journalism has received widespread recognition from fellow professionals. In 2005 he was awarded the Montaigne Prize by the Alfred Toepfer Stiftung Foundation and in 2006, the Federación de Asociaciones de Prensa de España (Spanish Federation of Press Associations) awarded him the special prize for his professional achievements. He has also received an award from the fundación Foro Jovellanos (Jovellanos Forum Foundation) as well as the Isaiah Berlin Prize. In addition, he was a board member of the International Press Institute and chairman of the World Association of Newspapers’ World Press Freedom Committee.

His international conferences include the one given to London School of Economics graduates, which had a great impact, predicting a new golden age for newspapers through digital media.
