David Buenfil, until now the CEO of the Skandia Group in Colombia, has been appointed as the CEO of the Old Mutual Group for Latin America and Asia, as revealed in an internal memo the Funds Society has been privy to.
Buenfil is substituted in his role by Daniel Cortés-McCallister, a professional with an impressive career trajectory in the financial sector, in the segments where Skandia has participation: pensions, trusts, stockbroker companies and insurance.
Buenfil, after four years at the frontlines of Skandia in Colombia, now moves on to take care of Latin American and Asian business for Old Mutual Group, Skandia’s parent company. During his time at Skandia he has had the opportunity to drive the company into a strengthened market position. Cortés-McCallister will report directly to Buenfil and the latter will stay connected to Columbia from his new post, as well as remaining on the Board of Directors.
Daniel Cortés McCallisteris a business administrator and accountant who graduated from Wharton School of Finance at the University of Pennsylvania. During his career Cortés has been linked to important companies in the financial sector, both inside Colombia and outside it; like Citibank, Bank of America, Banco Santander, BBVA, Porvenir and Davivienda, in which he fulfilled the role of Executive Vice-president of Capital and Investment Markets, until joining the Old Mutual company in Colombia.
