25 September 2019. AENOR, one of the world's ten certification companies and a leader in awarding innovative certificates with global support, has appointed Diego Herranz as Chief Executive Officer of its subsidiary in Peru and Ecuador.
Mr Herranz is a Tourism graduate from the Nebrija University with a specialist qualification in Quality Management and Business Certification from UNED [National Distance Education University] and has a Master's Degree in Marketing and Commercial Management from the ESIC Business School. He has worked at the company since 2013 and has more than 15 years of experience in management systems, both as regards implementation and maintaining systems in certified companies. He has also developed business for international certification and conformity assessment organisations, which enables him to take a broad view of the world of certification and business.
AENOR established its operation in Peru in 2007, followed by a subsidiary in Ecuador in 2008, in order to provide certification, construction supervision, inspection and training services. Since then, it has continued to grow in the two Andean countries: More than 600 certificates in force; more than 3,000 professionals trained in 2018 and more than 2,500 days of infrastructure monitoring and inspection in the region.
The outgoing CEO Pedro Fernández joins the Corporate Finance and Management Control Division as Director of Project Management and Project Manager Officer (PMO).
The appointment of the new Chief Executive Officer shows that AENOR is committed to growing and expanding its operations in the Andean region. Mr Herranz says that "Peru and Ecuador offer AENOR substantial opportunities, as conformity assessment has generated support and trust from interest groups within organisations and Public Administrations and become a commitment to transparency and rigour".
