The Spanish Association of Insurance and Risk Management, AGERS, will from now on be able to count on the services of Alicia Soler as Executive Manager, beginning a new period in which the association will continue to carry the true importance of Risk Management to each and every business and organisation.
Alicia Soler, AGERS Executive Manager
In April 2013, the association began the search for someone who could allow AGERS to confront different challenges and face the future, as well as offering new advantages to its associates. After a selection process, the committee created with the purpose of finding a new Executive Manager, along with the Board of Directors, culminated its work with the appointment of Alicia Soler. AGERS would like to show its appreciation to all of the candidates who showed such interest in what is an important step for the association.
In the words of the President of the association, Miguel Ángel Zarandona: “Alicia Soler’s appointment is without doubt the reinforcement that AGERS needed to carry out new objectives and support current ones, always for the good of Risk Management.”
Alicia Soler can rely on a career spanning nearly two decades in various fields within the insurance sector. Her experience in the brokering discipline began in Valencia, as support to Maciste Argente, Administrator of Argente Correduría de Seguros and current President of APROCOSE. Her move to Madrid resulted in the successful creation of the insurance department for Grupo Bartolomé, a key holding group in the automotive industry. She subsequently joined AICA, the Association of Alcobendas Entrepreneurs, in order to launch an insurance department under the guidance of Risk Management, also forming part of its Board of Directors. With a degree in Law from Valencia University, she specialised in insurance in various educational fields focused on mediation.
“The AGERS 2.0 project fills me with enthusiasm. To represent the Spanish Association of Insurance and Risk Management, regarded as the most important association in terms of associates and development in our country, is a big responsibility and to be the head of such an ambitious project like this one is a great challenge for me on a professional level. We intend to reach out to all Risk Management professionals, leaving nobody behind. Strengthening the work carried out by Risk Managers will be our core focus, offering daily support to our associates in terms of both training and the spreading of best practice.”
With this new appointment, AGERS hopes to be able to get closer to businesses, organisations, Risk Managers and its associates.
