Spain“Volunteers don’t get paid, not because they are worthless, but because they are priceless”.

As Head of the Z Zurich Foundation, I particularly endorse this quote. The Z Zurich Foundation is an agent of change and a catalyst to transform our culture that has a powerful impact thanks to the commitment of the Zurich Insurance Group’s people. Our colleagues make a real and positive difference in their communities therefore I’m proud to drive initiatives through the Z Zurich Foundation to support them and to leverage the role Zurich Insurance Group plays in society.

Corporate Responsibility, and at broader scale sustainability, have always been at the center of my career. In my former role as Human Resources and Corporate Responsibility Director for Zurich Spain for almost 20 years, besides the more HR driven initiatives and practices, I implemented the first local Corporate Responsibility strategy and supported the rollout of impactful programs focusing on youth empowerment and their capabilities development to enable and reinforce employability in Spain. All of this working with several organizations to amplify a positive transformation of the society.

I am a strong and experienced Human Resources /Corporate Responsibility professional graduated from IESE with a demonstrated history of working in the insurance industry.
Skilled in complex Cultural transformations, Leadership in global organizations, Talent Management, Corporate Social Responsibility, Coaching, Employee Engagement, and Organizational Development.
