A man of many countries and enthusiasms -

A profile of Jorge Luzzi, FERMA's new President 

FERMA's new President Jorge Luzzi spent three years in the finance department of the pharmaceutical company, Ciba Geigy, now Novartis. He observed that everything seemed to revolve around risk, but that there was little analysis of anything other than pure financial risk.


Having worked as an account executive with Marsh for eight years at the start of his career, however, he could also see the limitations of insurance. "Soon I started to think that risk wasn't only about doing the calculation but there was a lot of human aspect to risk. When there is a major loss, for example, it's not just the factory that's affected but the workers," he said.
