The executive is also confident that the appointment of Ms. Rivera to take the reins of the MCS Foundation will ensure the continuation of the outstanding community work done by the Foundation,” a news release reads.

Rivera succeeds Liana O’Drobinak, who has moved on to support entrepreneurial ventures in Puerto Rico as founding board member of Aurora Angel Network.

“I’m confident that Ingrid’s vast experience and talent will ensure our continued road to achieving our vision of being the undisputed leader in Puerto Rico’s healthcare industry. Meanwhile, Elba’s enthusiasm and knowledge have been invaluable resources for MCS over the past year. I’m sure she’s the right person to now take charge of the MCS Foundation and continue its mission of helping Puerto Rico’s elderly and impoverished,” O’Drobinak said.

Ms. Torres has more than 15 years of experience in the healthcare industry, directing successful brand development, growth and retention strategies at numerous health plans throughout Puerto Rico. She has a master’s degree in marketing from the University of Puerto Rico’s Río Piedras campus.
