Despite claiming the title of the richest man in the world, Zara's founder, Amancio Ortega, is a man of mystery.
On Wednesday, Ortega beat out Bill Gates to become the richest person on Earth, Forbes reported. Ortega currently has a $200 million edge over Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, due in

part to a particularly good week for the stock of Inditex, Zara's parent company.
According to Forbes, Ortega has crowded the world's richest person three other times — but has always surrendered the No. 1 position within a day.
 
Despite Ortega's enormous net worth, many people have never heard of him. He is an incredibly private man, is rarely seen in public, and has given just a handful of interviews throughout his incredibly successful career.
 
That career began when Ortega founded fast-fashion giant Zara with his then-wife Rosalia in 1975. Today, his retail company Inditex SA — which owns Zara, Massimo Dutti, and Pull&Bear — has 7,385 outposts around the world.
