A Night of Celebrations

More than 170 members and friends gathered for the 2019 Frank Ramírez de Arellano Award Gala on Wednesday, December 11 at the Club Náutico of San Juan to welcome the Christmas season and present the prestigious award to Rafael Rojo, VRM Companies President and CEO.

“Rafael Rojo represents the principles of the Frank Ramírez de Arellano Award”, explained Emilio Colón Zavala. “His discipline and ability to focus have helped him to participate in all aspects of development… We present this award to the friend, the professional, the philanthropist, the father and the husband, with great appreciation and certainty that he will continue contributing to the good of Puerto Rico.”

Thanks to our sponsors: Banco Popular, Madeco, Rimco, and The Marble Shop, and all the attendees, the Gala was a resounding success, bringing joy to all in a lively night for our industry.
