10th New Year’s Reception of MAPFRE GLOBAL RISKS German Branch in Cologne

The German branch held its tenth New Year’s reception in Cologne.

The German branch held its tenth New Year’s reception in Cologne. Manfred Alsdorf, Director of the German branch, was pleased to welcome 80 external guests, comprising clients, brokers and other business partners, in the venue with a picturesque view at the Cologne cathedral.

The management committee of MAPFRE GLOBAL RISKS was represented by Bosco Francoy, COO, José María del Pozo, CFO, Chris Smith, CRMO, Juan Luis Roman, CTO, and José Carlos Nájera, CUO.

Chris Smith talked in his welcome speech about the way of doing business in the shadow of the Brexit.

Bosco Francoy gave an overview about last year and reiterated the long term commitment of MAPFRE GLOBAL RISKS to the German market, although this is one of the most challenging markets in Europe.

A highlight of the event was the guest speaker. Gerd Kaiser, Managing Director of Daimler Insurances Services, gave a lecture about the mega claim, the explosion in Tianjin/China. Gerd Kaiser mentioned some impressive details: 3,000 tons of illegally stored toxic chemicals caused an explosion with the power of 21 tons TNT dynamite. More than 7,000 cars of Daimler were affected. The claims management process took more than 14 months.

The guests appreciated the opportunity to meet the management of MAPFRE GLOBAL RSIKS and the casual talks.
