About the Founder
Daniel Chavez Moran, now retired from development of hotels and resorts, founded Grupo Vidanta in 1974 after graduating from The University of Guadalajara with a degree in Civil Engineering. He stepped away from Grupo Vidanta to found Fundación Grupo Vidanta (originally named Fundación Grupo Mayan) and focus on philanthropy.
Fundación Grupo Vidanta is a non-profit institution with a mission to promote social sciences and culture for the common good. Moran is also the founder of Fundación Delia Moran A.C., which is focused on helping children grow up in a healthy environment. While no longer active in Grupo Vidanta itself, Moran’s efforts in the non-profit sector help promote the name of the companies he originally founded.
