Biography

Along with his brother Nahman, Istanbul-born entrepreneur Isak Andic founded fast fashion brand Mango in 1972 and eventually turned it into a global force. Born to a Turkish Sephardic Jewish family, Andic launched his apparel business when he moved to Barcelona, Spain, where he began selling hand-embroidered t-shirts. He started opening shops around Barcelona and Madrid and eventually began stocking other brands. In 1984, he brought his activities together under one roof, which he called Mango.

The notoriously media-shy Andic did not make public appearances and avoided having his picture taken until recent years. Mango is now present in over 100 countries (65 percent of his stores are franchises) and brings in over 2 billion euros in annual revenue.

Andic is based in Barcelona and is separated from his wife, who have with three grown children, two of whom work for Mango. Jonathan Andic, his son, is expected to eventually succeed his father at the helm of the business.
