As General Manager of a general insurance company, the experience of working for many years with the Gazmuri & Cía team, always gave me the reassurance that they function as a professional and empathic group, where all the aspects and consequences of the decisions were duly weighed and evaluated with a great knowledge and understanding of the business. They always anticipated the consequences of the decisions that must be taken at the managerial level of a company.
