OUR HISTORY

Eleta was founded in 1964 by Don Fernando Eleta Almarán (1921-2011), a renowned Panamanian businessman, engineer, financier, philanthropist, and public servant. Mr. Eleta pioneered the first and biggest media and telecommunications company (RPC Radio, Television, Cable and Digital) in Panama. He later founded additional companies, including Air Panama, the country’s first airline, Aseguradora Mundial, and Café Eleta, among others. He was also the founder of various civic associations and institutions, including the Panamanian Association of Company Executives (“APEDE” for its abbreviation in Spanish) and the National Association for the Conservation of Nature (“ANCON” for its abbreviation in Spanish).
