I am Andrés Fornerod, I was born in a small city of 35,000 inhabitants in Argentina called Sunchales. By profession I am a Systems Engineer, I have been in the insurance industry since 2000 working in the Sancor Seguros Group, Insurance Group Number 1 in the Argentine insurance market. I worked for 10 years in the area of Information Technology, knowing the business from "0 and 1" and in parallel I was training through various masters and postgraduate degrees in business administration until I decided to leave my comfort zone and start to work in areas closer to the business itself. From the Systems area I went to the Strategic Projects area where I spent 3 years learning even more about business processes (sales, operations, marketing, HR, accounting, finance, etc.) and then to the International Business area where I worked in Planning and Management Control of foreign subsidiaries (Uruguay, Paraguay, Brazil and Colombia). With established and solid knowledge, transversal to the entire business, in 2015 I was offered to assume the position of Administration and Finance Manager at Sancor Seguros Paraguay and I gladly accepted the challenge. I was in charge of the areas of Accounting, Finance, Systems and Operations, I worked for 3 years in these areas capitalizing on all the knowledge acquired from academia and in 2019 I returned to my first love taking charge of Operations and Technology. The learning of these 20 years has been enormous both professionally and personally. Some achievements of which I am personally proud are the constitution of my family composed of my wife Sonia and my children, Lucía and Felipe; and from the professional and labor point of view, the opening of a subsidiary in Brazil of the insurance company in which I work. In this project I worked as project manager and I was working in the strategic projects area of the company. Another of my most current achievements is the implementation of the new ERP of the company in which he currently worked, replacing the 4 previous systems. This time I was the project leader and I was working as the Administration and Finance Manager. I am currently in charge of the Innovation and Optimization Program of Sancor Seguros Paraguay whose main objective is to carry out the digital and agile transformation of the business. I am convinced that business agility will be the way to carry out business management and management in VUCA times (Volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity) as well as I am convinced that education and constant learning are key aspects survival both at the business and individual level.
