New Americas steering team to drive broker growth opportunities in key region for Brokerslink


Global broking business Brokerslink has launched a new regional team to support the
continued growth and development of opportunities for its broker partners and affiliates in North America
and Latin America, as well as its wider international network.

The team, with representatives from the USA, Canada, Brazil, Argentina, Colombia and Peru will focus on
supporting the expansion of the network and Brokerslink brand across the Americas as well as maximising
business opportunities for partners and affiliates across the region, strengthening communications between
them and assisting in the development of new niche products and innovative services with Brokerslink’s
insurer partners.


The steering team is led by Ariel Couto, the Brokerslink Americas regional manager and has the following
representatives:
   - Estela Lusky, Vice President/Account Executive International, Alliant Insurance Services, USA
   - Esteban Sánchez, CEO of Grupo Artai, Argentina
   - Juan Mario Acevedo, President, Correcol, Colombia
   - Giulio Valz-Gen, CEO, Contacto, Peru
   - Shawn DeSantis, President and CEO of Navacord, Canada

Speaking on the launch of the steering team, Ariel Couto said: “The team members represent the diverse
experience and expertise that Brokerslink’s partners and affiliates have across the Americas but we have a
common goal; to build a stronger Brokerslink in this important and strategic region. The formation of the
steering team is another important step forward in coordinating our activities and supporting partners and
affiliates to identify and build cross border and global business opportunities.

In the last year, Brokerslink has seen a real strengthening of representation and capabilities with the
addition of Alliant Insurance Services as its partner in the U.S. and Navacord becoming the new affiliate in
Canada.
