ACE appoints Iberia A&H manager

ACE Group has appointed Iñigo de Górgolas as manager, accident and health (A&H) for Iberia, as it continues to strengthen its leadership team in Madrid.

In this role, de Górgola will be responsible for the performance, strategy and future growth of ACE’s A&H business in Spain and Portugal, including its direct marketing operation, its corporate and affinity business, and its travel portfolio.

He will report to Véronique Brionne, who was appointed country president for ACE in Iberia at the beginning of 2014 and to Pat Drinan, regional senior vice president, A&H in EMEA.

De Górgola joins ACE from Assurant Solutions, where most recently he was country manager for Spain.

The appointment follows the promotion of Jose Luiz Gomez Banovio, previously manager of ACE’s A&H business in Southern Europe, to the role of regional head of travel for EMEA.

Véronique Brionne, country president, Iberia at ACE, said: “Given the importance of Spain and Portugal’s accident and health markets to ACE, it was important to find an experienced leader to take our extensive direct marketing, corporate and affinity and travel business forwards. I am delighted to welcome Iñigo to ACE.

“His breadth of financial services expertise, including in building strategic partnerships, business development and customer relationship management, complements well the skills and expertise of our management team. It also equips us perfectly to drive our plans for targeted growth in a way that responds to customer needs as economic recovery takes hold.”

Patrick Drinan, regional senior vice president, A&H, EMEA, at ACE, said: “Iberia, where we have some 40 years of experience under the ACE brand and our predecessor companies, is one of the key hubs of our accident and health business in Europe and represents one of our largest direct marketing operations in the region.

“Iñigo will be instrumental in leading the continued development of the strong propositions that we enjoy both as ACE and through our alliances with select strategic partners, further underlining the importance of Madrid as a centre of excellence for our A&H business.”
