Rodrigo has more than 20 years of technical and management experience in the insurance sector, which he will use to lead Sapiens’ sales efforts in the Iberian market, expanding the presence of Sapiens across Spain and Portugal.
Rodrigo has a successful track record in defining, building and selling insurance platforms.

This follows upon the efforts we have made to incorporate Sapiens’ global knowledge and know-how in developing our local products and services,” says Diogo Moraes Sunyer, Country Manager, Sapiens Iberia. “Rodrigo is an experienced sales professional with significant knowledge of modernizing insurance processes and information systems, as well as in implementing digitization strategies.

In my view, their understanding of the true needs of the industry lays the foundation for their strong customer relationships,” says Moraes Sunyer. “Little by little our solutions will enable the industry to become more integrated, agile and adaptive.”
