Who we are |
Grupo CIO

Grupo CIO

Grupo CIO is a family company in which tradition and modernity blend with perseverance and the ability to diversify our business and grow continuously. Since 1902, we have maintained our essence, with part of the Zamorano family leading the current trajectory of the Grupo CIO.

After our beginnings as a tobacco company, we now owe our solid growth to our capacity for innovation, flexibility and long-term focus. Native from the Canary Islands, like our capital, we are a benchmark company in the tourist, industrial, service and real estate sectors.  All this has allowed us to be a source of direct and indirect job creation of great economic and social significance in the Canary Islands.

“We have managed for more than a century to create new opportunities and jobs, contributing to the dynamization of the Canary Islands’ economy”, Francisco Javier Zamorano, CEO
