NU Online News Service, Oct. 8, 5:35 p.m. – The Federacion Interamericana de Empresas de Seguros, Bogota, has named Rodolfo Wehrhahn to be vice president for its northern region, which includes Mexico, Spain and the United States.

Wehrhahn will serve as a representative to FIDES for the American Council of Life Insurers, Washington.

The ACLI has taken over the council’s FIDES responsibilities.

Wehrhahn is the managing director at Transamerica Reinsurance, Charlotte, N.C., for the Latin American region.
