The Board of Directors has approved proposing to the Annual General Meeting the appointment of Francesco Vanni d’Archirafi and Elena Sanz Isla as members of the Board of Directors.
Francesco Vanni d’Archirafi holds a degree in Finance from the American University and has an MBA in Finance and International Business from Columbia University. He has extensive experience in the finance field, where he has held senior positions of responsibility at Citigroup, where he worked for 38 years, both in Europe and America. He is currently president of Euroclear Holding.
Elena Sanz Isla has a degree in Economics and Business Administration from the University of Alcalá de Henares and a Master’s Degree in Risk and Insurance Management from the Pontifical University of Salamanca. She has developed her professional career at MAPFRE in both finance and human resources functions in Spain and Argentina. She is currently the Group Chief People Officer in the Corporate People and Organization Area at MAPFRE and a member of the Executive Committee. She also oversees Sustainability for the Group and has been a member of the Fundación MAPFRE Board of Trustees since 2021.
Francesco Vanni d’Archirafi will serve on the Board of Directors as an independent board director, while Elena Sanz will do so as an executive board director.
Once both appointments have been formalized, MAPFRE’s most senior decision-making body will comprise a total of 15 members, more than half of whom are independent directors. In addition, a further step is taken in the internationalization of the Board, which features three nationalities (Spanish, Brazilian and Italian). The presence of women on the Board also increases, where they now represent 47% of the total members.
