AFL Insurance Brokers, an independent Lloyd’s broker, has appointed Pilar Villanueva (pictured) as head of its Latin American desk. She will be based in London.

Villanueva began her career in 1997 and has worked in markets throughout Latin America and globally, with specialties in property and casualty. She was most recently an account executive at Price Forbes & Partners and has also served as a divisional director at Willis.

“I’m so pleased to be joining the family here at AFL to assist with the development of Latin American property and casualty business,” Villanueva said. “Throughout my career I have particularly enjoyed developing relationships with regional offices, independent brokers and markets in Latin America. AFL understood completely what I wanted to do, and I’m particularly happy to once again be harnessing my language and interpersonal skills to assist and understand Latin American and Spanish-speaking clients, and to prove that language is not a barrier but an asset.”

“The Latin American market is a high-growth market, where local knowledge and relationships are essential for success,” said Toby Esser, AFL chairman. “I’m delighted that Pilar has joined our team and can put her significant experience supporting regional brokers and markets to the best use.”
