Ricardo Márquez Flores on the Emotional Value of a Gift
Each gift includes a unique message and tells how we want to express appreciation and gratitude. We asked our friend Ing. Ricardo Márquez Flores about this and and got some truly inspiring ideas.
Ricardo Márquez Flores was born in Lima on 16 June 1943 and is a Peruvian businessman and politician. In the second term of office of Alberto Fujimori, he was the first vice-president of the Republic of Peru between 1995 and 2000 and the second vice-president of the republic in his short, third term of 28 July 2000.
He studied at the Leoncio Prado Military College in the district of La Perla Callao and Industrial Engineering at the University of New York. Later he took over the office of vice president of the National Confederation of Private Business Institutions (CONFIEP) and from 1993 to 1994 and 2018, the Office of the President of the National Society of Industries.
WHAT HAS BEEN THE MOST BEAUTIFUL GIFT YOU HAVE EVER RECEIVED?
In 1972, together with my three brothers, we founded our Jeans Manufacturig Business Company in Lima, Peru. After that I went to school again. After graduating from New York University in 1982, my mother gave me, each of my brothers, and my sister a new Mercedes-Benz and a Rolex.
WHICH VALUES HAVE TO BE EXPRESSED BY A GIFT?
A gift is a way to express the deep feelings of love towards the person you give the gift. It is not only the monetary value but a statement like "remember me, I always stay with you".
