A true Euro woman


IT is said that behind every successful man is a strong woman. In the case of British Ambassador to Spain, Simon Manley, that truism could well be turned on its head. Mr Manley’s wife – Maria Isabel Fernandez Utges – stands squarely as his equal in strength and success.
Euro Weekly News Publishers Michel and Steven Euesden had the pleasure of meeting and having lunch with Maria at the Ambassador’s residence in Madrid on Friday, May 15. There they found a remarkable, dynamic person – a genuine high flyer who combines being a mother and wife with a hugely successful career as a partner and director of prestigious London lawyers, Bristows LLP.
She is fluent in three languages, Spanish, English and French, and slightly less fluent in German, Italian and Catalan. Maria agreed to be interviewed for a book being produced by the EWN media group. Euro Women will focus on the lives and achievements of some of the more remarkable women in the expat population. This book will come out for Christmas and all proceeds will go to deserving charities.
For more details on Euro Women and the interview that took place with one of the most dynamic women one could hope to meet, see next week’s Euro Weekly News.
