In 2019 she was named Person of the Year by the Association of Young Insurance Professionals.

Glenn Thomas, Global Practice Leader, Howden Employee Health and Benefits said: “Our belief has always been that to offer high-quality consultancy services, you need outstanding talent empowered by digital solutions and data analytics.

And it’s working, this approach has helped us treble our Employee Health and Benefits business over the past three years and build an international footprint with EB specialists in over 20 countries.”

José Manuel González, Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Howden Broking, added: “Our intention is to help our clients adapt to the world as it changes. Building a compelling EB proposition and helping our clients look after their people in these challenging times and beyond really is core to delivering on that promise; not to mention, as a proudly “People First” business, it feels like an authentic space for us to occupy.”

Matarranz said she was excited to join “a company with extraordinary financial strength, as demonstrated by its ambitious strategic plan to be the alternative of choice in Employee Benefits.”
