ANCCE Re-Stuctures LG-ANCCE Management For Growth
The ANCCE Board of Directors has approved the revised the P.R.E. Stud Book management organizational chart by appointing Arancha Rodriguez Sainz de los Terreros as the new Technical Director. She will take over from Pedro Rey Alvarez, who had filled the post since 2006.
Dr. Arancha Rodriguez earned a doctorate in Veterinarian Science at the Complutense University in Madrid and has dedicated her professional career to the world of horses. After several years working at the General Office Agricultural and Livestock Resources in the Ministry of the Environment and Rural and Marine Resources (MARM) where she specialized in equines, she has, since October of 2006, been the International Director of the P.R.E. Stud Book. During this time, the Stud Book has seen important growth to currently handle some 180,000 horses in more than 50 counties. In 2010, it must be stated that horses from seven new countries were welcomed including Jordan, Coatia, Israel and Kazakhstan.
Arancha Rodriguez takes on the overall responsibility for the Stud Book in substitution of Pedro Rey, who performed his role as the Technical Director perfectly, until this past December 31, 2010 when he resigned. In the limited time that ANCCE has been handling the P.R.E. Stud Book, a task that it was entrusted by the government of Spain as the ultimate representative of the breed, the indexes for quality, efficiency and reliability have increased. This in turn, has earned the P.R.E.Stud Book international recognition and it is currently considered a model of reference for other equine breeds, especially in Europe and America.
Additionally, the ANCCE Board of Directors approved the appointment of Dr. Pedro Javier Azor Ortiz as the Assistant Director of the Stud Book. With a degree in Veterinary Science from the University of Cordoba and a Doctorate from the University of Sevilla, he has undertaken research in the field of equine molecular genetics. Since 2008, he has had ties with ANCCE, as the Technical Director of the P.R.E. Breeding Program
Alfonso Cope Jurado, who for the past four years has been in charge of the National Division of the Stud Book, will become an outside consultant for the PRE Stud Book.
Lastly, David Fernandez Martinez, Telecommunications Engineer, has come on board to maintain and handle all Stud Book IT programs. Previously, David performed the same tasks with Sadiel, an external technology company.
The USPRE Board congratulates and extends its best wishes for continued success to Dr. Arancha Rodriguez, Dr. Pedro Javier Azor Ortiz and David Fernandez Martinez
