Juan Carlos López Porcel to take the helm following outgoing president Zarandona Michelangelo’s departure

Spanish risk management association AGERS has appointed Juan Carlos López Porcel, ArcelorMittal Southern Europe director of risk and insurance, as its new president.

The association’s board members voted “unanimously” for Porcel during a board meeting last week.

Porcel will replace outgoing president D Zarandona Michelangelo, who stepped down after leaving his position as risk manager.

Michelangelo will continue to serve on the board.

Porcel was previously vice-president of the association and has sat on various committees and working groups and extensive experience as a risk manager.
