Bonsucro would like to formally welcome Claudia Asensio as the Vice Chair of the Members Council after receiving unanimous support from the Members’ Council. Dr. Claudia Asensio manages the Corporate Responsibility division for Pantaleon Group, a sugarcane, ethanol and energy production company in Latin America. Corporate Responsibility for the group integrates environmental and social issues, including worker health and safety. Claudia has a Doctorate in Public Health from the University of Massachusetts and a Bachelors in Nursing Science with minors in Nutrition and Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania. She is currently finalising a Masters in Environmental Economics. She is board advisor to Fundación Carlos F. Novella and Vice-Chair for the Science Committee at the World Sugar Research.
The Members’ Council acts as a reference and sounding board for the Board of Directors, allowing members to have a critical input into the organisation. Each year one-fifth of the existing members of the Members’ Council must retire (those having been in post longest retiring first) and elections held for their replacements.
