Dr. Josep Santacreu, CEO of DKV Seguros, awarded as Social Entrepreneur 2015 in Spain

For the first time the award is given to a business manager. It rewards entrepreneurial work in the social field.

On 25th February 2016 Dr. Josep Santacreu received the Social Entrepreneur of the Year in Spain Award by Ernst & Young (EY). The reward recognizes the work of the best and most successful entrepreneurs in business practice around the world. It is the first time that the Social Entrepreneur award is given to a private company director, as it has traditionally awarded representatives of non-profit organizations. The reason is the outstanding career and commitment of Dr. Santacreu in the social field.

The award recognizes Dr. Santacreu role as a promoter, developer and ultimately as an entrepreneur, in many social projects, both within DKV Seguros and together with other organizations and initiatives. Among all of them, the DKV Integralia Foundation stands out. Chaired by Dr. Santacreu from the start, it is dedicated to the employment of people with severe disabilities. The Spanish pilot project served as a role model for initiatives around the world. Today the foundation has 400 employees and 1,700 beneficiaries, and it operates in Spain, Poland, Peru, Colombia and India.
