Verlingue SAS, the shareholder holding the capital of Verlingue Portugal, is pleased to announce the appointment of Luiza Fragoso Teodoro as CEO of its subsidiary, who will report operationally to Anne-Jacques de Dinechin, CEO of the Verlingue Company. As CEO, Luiza Teodoro’s main mission will be to lead Verlingue in Portugal, aiming to pursue sustainable development and growth in each of its business sectors.

Dr. Luiza Teodoro has 25 years of experience in the insurance sector and possesses a deep knowledge of the business.

“I am very excited to join this fantastic team and hope to contribute to this ambitious project in a constantly transforming sector. The main challenge is to add value to the extraordinary work the team has been developing, while maintaining a focus on sustainable business growth,” said Luiza Teodoro.

This appointment is part of the continuity plan for Verlingue Portugal initiated in March 2021 when the entire capital was acquired. “It is with great pleasure that we welcome Luiza. Her experience and knowledge of the sector will help us achieve our ambition for the development of Verlingue Portugal, started in 2021, contributing to building a European, family-owned, and independent brokerage company,” stated Anne-Jacques, CEO of the Verlingue Company.

“At this moment of passing the baton, we must express our gratitude and recognition for the work and legacy left by António Correa Figueira and Joaquim Oliveira, founders and leaders of this project. We will continue to rely on their contribution, now as advisors to the Board of Directors, maintaining their input for the development and enhancement of Verlingue Portugal,” says José Morgado, President of Verlingue Portugal.
