Ibarrola configures a Government team with a "strong female profile", with 13 out of 25 positions held by women.

PAMPLONA, August 4.

The Local Government Board of the City Council of Pamplona has approved, in its session this Friday, the appointment of Ignacio Gallardo as manager of the City Council and Luis Manuel Iribarren Aguerri as the new head of the Municipal Police.

Furthermore, according to the City Council's statement, three new departmental directors have been appointed, corresponding to People Management, Urbanism and Housing, Tourist and Commercial Promotion, and the management direction of the Autonomous Body of Infant Schools, and seven other directors have been confirmed in their positions. Out of the 25 people who make up the management team of the Pamplona City Council, 13 are women.

Gallardo (Lleida, 1976) has a degree and an MBA in Business Administration and Management and has a professional career of over twenty years in the business world, which he has combined with teaching. As a specialist in strategy and business models, he has worked for different firms, such as the operational marketing agency Logistix Kids or Planeta d'Agostini.

This previous experience led him to become a partner and executive director of the strategic consulting firm Marketing Tactic, which became part of the ADI Group, where Gallardo worked for two years as business development manager. In recent months, he has served as director of the SCDR Anaitasuna.

His teaching work has led him to teach in several business schools and universities, such as ESADE, ESIC, and the University of Navarra, among others. He is also a coach in accelerators and business incubators such as Horizon 2020, InnoEnergy, Ecoemprendedor XXI, BCN Activa, or Madri+D.

On the other hand, the mayor of Pamplona, Cristina Ibarrola, has appointed Luis Manuel Iribarren Aguerri as the new head of the Municipal Police, replacing Javier Goya, a position he will take up on August 16.

Iribarren holds a degree in Law from UNED and a diploma in labor relations from UPNA. He has been serving responsibilities within the Local Police force as an interim inspector of the Proximity Brigade.

The new Chief joined the Municipal Police of Pamplona in 1995. He is a professor at the School of Security and Emergencies of Navarra and a professor of Constitutional Law at Foro Europeo Escuela de Negocios.

In 2017, he participated in the technical committee responsible for the drafting of the Master Plan and the Regulations for the organization and functioning of the Municipal Police of Pamplona.

Among the appointments approved this Friday, Eunate Ayestarán has been appointed as the new director-manager of the Autonomous Body of Municipal Infant Schools of Pamplona.

Ayestarán (Beasáin, Guipúzcoa, 1971), who had already occupied the technical direction of the organization in January, has a degree in Education Sciences from the University of Navarra and a diploma in Early Childhood Education from the Cardenal Cisneros University of Alcalá de Henares.

Recently, she has taken on the direction of the newly reopened Infant School of Mendebaldea. In addition, she has worked as a pedagogical director and educator, responsible for the 2-3 year-old classroom of several nurseries in Pamplona and in the Bizkarmendia and Malkaitz infant schools.

The new municipal structure will have Olga Gordillo as director of the People Management area, directly reporting to Councilor María Echávarri.

Gordillo (Pamplona, 1963), graduated in Labor Sciences from the University of La Rioja, graduated in Social Science from the University of Zaragoza, and specialized in Human Resources from the Polytechnic University of Madrid, has been a civil servant of the Navarrese Health Service-Osasunbidea since 1988.

Over the course of three decades, she has assumed different functions, including becoming the Personnel Director of the University Hospital of Navarra between 2013 and 2015. During this time, she has been responsible for the Admission Service of the Outpatient Directorate, head of the Service of the Specialized Assistance and Ambulatory Assistance Area. She has also worked as the head of the Payroll Unit and the Personnel Section, among other functions.

Within the Urbanism and Housing council, headed by Izaskun Zozaya, José Luis Navarro (Caparroso, 1967), a graduate in Law from the University of Navarra and a master's degree in Territorial Planning, Urbanism, and the Environment from the San Pablo-CEU University, has been appointed as the director.

Active since 1995, Navarro has served as a municipal secretary and legal advisor in several localities and entities in the region. Thus, he has been the secretary of the Barásoain - Olóriz municipalities association, secretary of the Mairaga - Zona Media Water Association, secretary of the High-Speed Consortium of the Pamplona Region, and secretary of the Estella City Council.

He has also worked as a legal advisor-lawyer at the Noáin-Valle de Elorz and Tafalla City Councils. His connection with the Pamplona City Council dates back to 2005 when, for six years, he was the director of the legal advisory of the Urban Planning Department.

Finally, the Local Government Board has appointed Amparo Miqueléiz as the director of the Tourism and Commercial Promotion Area, which is under the council's authority led by Clara García Valiño, and she will also assume the role of deputy to the manager.

Miqueléiz (Pamplona, 1979), graduated in Law from the University of Navarra and certified in a senior course in Local Public Management (INAP), has 13 years of experience in the public sector.

She has been a municipal secretary and mayor of Huarte, as well as director-manager of the public company Services of the Pamplona Region and chief of staff and head of Strategic Projects at the MCP. She has also been the representative in Navarra for the IE Business School. Until now, she worked as the head of Health and Well-being, Communication, and Training at the FCCMA Guipúzcoa-Navarra delegation.

The Government team, led by Mayor Cristina Ibarrola, has also advocated "continuity in several key areas of the City Council."

In this regard, the Local Government Board has confirmed in their positions seven department directors. Thus, Nuria Larrayoz will continue as the director of Finance; Olivia Elizari will maintain the direction of Social Services; Conchi Mateo will continue as the director of Sports and will also add the direction of the area of Citizen Relations, Participation, and the Elderly.
