INNOVATION AND ACTIVISM

Angel Mas

President, ACOM

The president of ACOM, the principal organization in Spain countering the antisemitic BDS movement that targets Israel, Angel Mas made headlines in August 2018 when he successfully led a legal campaign that reversed pro-boycott policies adopted by two major Spanish cities. The two repeals came in the wake of a lawsuit filed by ACOM, which warned that the resolution unlawfully discriminated against “any Israeli citizen or company, and any Spanish individual associated with Israel.” Under Mas' leadership, ACOM has so far won 33 cases against BDS in Spanish courts, and lost none. These include two high court rulings in 2016 and 2017, which found that the BDS movement engages in unconstitutional discrimination. Mas holds a BA in Business Administration from ICADE in Madrid and from Middlesex University in London, as well as a postgraduate degree from the Darden Business School at the University of Virginia.
