Avelino Brito, AEC Managing Director


The Board of Directors of the Spanish Association for Quality (AEC) has unanimously agreed to appoint Avelino Brito as Director General. Brito will take over from Marta Villanueva who, as well as having been associated with the company for 26 years, also served as Director General since 2008.

Avelino Brito has a Degree in Industrial Engineering from the Universidad Pontificia Comillas (ICAI), a Master's Degree in Business Administration and Management from ICADE and a Certificate in Corporate Governance from the Instituto de Consejeros y Administradores.

He began his career at the Spanish Association for Standardization and Certification. After working in the strategic consulting and logistics services sector, Brito rejoined the Company, where he held several posts, including that of Director General.

One of his goals as Director General of the AEC is to promote global, open and transforming Quality, which integrates all management divisions of organisations and responds to the challenges of the new business paradigm.

The AEC has been a member of the Spanish Association for Standardization, UNE, since 1986 and forms part of its Board of Directors.
