Jose Manuel Corral, the outgoing COO of MAPFRE USA, has been appointed to lead MAPFRE VIDA as its CEO starting August 2024. He will also manage the Bancassurance Channel for MAPFRE ESPAÑA. Corral has been with MAPFRE for over 30 years and has played a crucial role in navigating the company through challenging periods in the U.S. insurance sector.

In addition to his new COO role, Daniel Olohan’s appointment to the Board of Directors will further strengthen leadership ties within the company. Jose Manuel Corral will similarly join the Board of Directors of MAPFRE ESPAÑA, reinforcing his continued influence within the MAPFRE Group.

“Dan brings strong leadership and a deep understanding of MAPFRE USA’s business and the industry to this position,” said MAPFRE USA CEO Jaime Tamayo. “Having overseen our legal and regulatory affairs for many years, he is uniquely qualified and well-positioned to drive our operational strategy forward and ensure continued efficiency and excellence across the organization.”

We wish him the best in his new position.”
