Earlier this year Jose Luis Varela Lopez left his post as General Manager at Grupo Asegurador Rivadavia, Argentina. At the same time the company saw the departure of the Sub General Manager, Jorge Martínez, who had chosen to take early retirement. Jose Luis has always been a strong supporter of ICMIF and attended many ICMIF events particularly the MORO conference.
A new General Manager Rosana Ibarrat was appointed and she has worked at Grupo Asegurador Rivadavia since 1984 and is a public accountant by profession. She has held various positions at the company including accountancy, taxation, management control and more recently organisation and systems.
The Board expressed their gratitude to the former General Manager, Jose Luis, and the Sub General Manager, Jorge Martínez, for their commitment and professionalism.
