The Rufino-Prieto Family
Inquirer is a family-owned business chaired by the matriarch, Marixi Rufino-Prieto.
Her children are involved in different outlets: Alexandra “Sandy” Prieto-Romualdez is the president of the broadsheet Philippine Daily Inquirer while Ma. Theressa Prieto-Valdez is a lifestyle columnist at the paper. Paolo Prieto, meanwhile, runs the digital platform, inquirer.net.
Marixi and her family were included in the 2007 and 2008 Forbes’ list of richest Filipinos, ranking 39th and 40th, respectively. But the family’s wealth did not only come from their media empire, as they are also involved in other businesses, particularly with the following real estate companies: Marilex Realty Development Corporation, Corinthian Commercial Corporation, Lexmedia Realty Corporation and Sunvar Realty Development Corporation.
Marilex has projects in elite subdivisions such as Forbes Park, San Lorenzo Village and The Fort Global City. Corinthian, meanwhile, caters to middle-income families with affordable residential houses such as Corinthian Homes in Sta. Rosa, Laguna. One of the projects of Lexmedia is Casa Bougainvillea-- a condominium in Makati to cater to employees of Philippine Daily Inquirer. Lastly, Sunvar developed 82-hectare elite subdivision Corinthian Gardens along EDSA.
Mercedes “Peachy” Prieto, Marixi’s sister-in-law, also has shares in Inquirer Holdings. Aside from this she also runs restaurant and cafe Casa Roces in Malacanang.
