The insurer MAPFRE’s Board of Directors have agreed to create an advisory council to help analyse the main strategic and operational plans related to technology, transformation and innovations, make proposals to be presented to the MAPFRE Board, and prepare an annual report on essential strategic aspects aimed at improving the company’s technological development, with special emphasis on those that must be reinforced or reoriented.
Formed by experienced professionals
The Council will be chaired by Antonio Huertas, and three company executives will act as members, along with four external experts with extensive experience in technology management, transformation and innovation. Other professionals with recognised experience in business technology management may later join them.

On the part of the company, in addition to the chairman and CEO, Francisco Marco and José Manuel Inchausti will form part of this advisory body. José Antonio Arias, Chief Innovation Officer of MAPFRE, who leads MAPFRE Open Innovation, the company's open innovation platform, will act as secretary to the council.
