Being named as one of the 'ten women to watch across Europe' is no mean feat. But SpinVox founder and chief executive Christina Domecq has taken the Wall Street Journal's accolade in her stride. She said at the time that 'the hard work has only just begun and we're all focused on building our business in the year ahead'.
After all, Domecq has built not just one but is now on her third successful business, and knows that hard work and sheer determination count for much. It is a philosophy she carries through to every aspect of her life. Domecq is the ultimate action woman who counts paragliding, rock climbing, sailing, scuba diving and mountaineering among her passions. And she also finds time to devote to charity. She helped fund an orphanage in South Africa, which houses 150 children, in an area beset with poverty and HIV, amongst other projects.
