José Miguel Fernández López, one of the founders of Twinner Iberia, passed away on June 28 at the age of 55. He was one of the six directors of the Spanish buying group, which started in 2005 under the name Oxigeno Iberosport. It changed its name shortly afterwards, following an agreement with Twinner International. He was the first retailer who adopted Twinner's corporate identity and the first one who opened a franchised sneakers store under its new banner, Foot on Mars, in 2014.
