Barcelona - Where is Ferran - seems like Albert is calling the shot?

Does Ferran develop the food and Albert runs the business? In this interview, Ferran isn't mentioned, is he? We met Albert in late 2012 and found him quite charming which I think few describe Ferran that way :) Any thought?
I've always been under the impression that these were all Albert's restaurants with Ferran being a business partner with the input that that involves and the only place where he was more hands-on was Tickets.
I read the other article much too quickly, but I didn't see where it explained their business relationship. Could you point out the text?
"Now, as Ferran burnishes his legacy—building the El Bulli Foundation, a multimillion-dollar center for culinary innovation, and BulliPedia, an online food encyclopedia—Albert is staking his individual reputation on several ambitious projects, all in Barcelona. (Ferran, as ever, is an investor and an ally, but these are Albert’s gigs.) "
It had seemed to me that Ferran was the 'rock star' and Albert the baby brother. Matters not in the least. Tickets was great and I'm betting they all are or will be.
