Isabel Guerrero has been appointed by the World Bank’s president, Robert Zoellick, to serve as the South Asia Region’s vice president.
Guerrero leaves behind her previous New Delhi-based job as country director for India to assume her new role.
She joined the organisation 26 years ago, and early in her career worked as a country economist for a number of mostly Asian nations, including Philippines, Myanmar and Central Asian republics.
More recently, she has held the post of country director for a range of countries, Bolivia, Ecuador, Paraguay, Peru and Mexico.
Guerrero replaced her predecessor Praful Patel on 2 July.
Patel is leaving the post due to retirement.
Guerrero has expressed her delight at her appointment, and has described the region she is now director of, as one of enormous hope for the future, exemplified by rampant growth over the last ten years.
