Following a 50-year-old career in banking and finance with the last 14-year’s dedicated to reinsurance, Active Re’s founder Juan Antonio Niño Pulgar announced his retirement as CEO.
Mr. Niño will continue to serve as the Executive Chairman of the Board of Directors of the company.
“Being the founder and leader of this company has been my identity and passion over these 14 years. Now, it’s time to let it go and pass the responsibility of this endeavor to a group of dedicated and proven professionals,” quoted Mr. Niño.
From now on, the Active Re journey towards becoming “Global, Innovative and Specialized” will be led by Mr. Ramon Martínez Carrera, who will become the CEO of the company on April 1, 2021. Mr. Martinez-Carrera has been deputy CEO of the company for the past 2 years.
“I am delighted to leave the company in the hands of Ramon. His work ethic, wealth of knowledge, and experience with a strong global perspective will surely come to bear, as they have, in this new role as CEO. I believe he is the right person in the right place, and at the right time, to lead the company. As for me, I will be focusing all my energy and strength on my health and my family. After 50 years it is time to focus on other personal and professional goals” Mr. Niño said.
Juan Antonio Niño was responsible for building a solid foundation based on conviction and hard work and led the company for more than a decade to a sizeable volume of written premiums. He also built long-lasting personal and business relationships based on trust, respect, and integrity all over the world.
This decision gives rise to an operational change that will continue to position the organization to meet the opportunities and challenges of being an international competitor in reinsurance in the 21st century.
