ISA Office in Granada, Spain

Laura Reyes Ruiz

Associate Vice President of Italian, South African and Pacific Operations in Granada, Spain

Laura Reyes Ruiz began her international adventure with ISA in 1997 as Resident Director for Granada, Spain, her hometown. During her degree studies at the University of Granada she honed her international skills with stays in Siena, Italy, London and Chicago. Since then she has held many positions and spearheaded many projects at ISA, including playing a key role in ISA's expansion into regions such as South Africa, Italy, the Middle East, and Australia/New Zealand. Laura is often called upon to train new resident directors and provide leadership in offices that experience growth and personnel changes or that are newly launched by. In her current role as Associate Vice President of Italy, South Africa and Pacific Region, Laura oversees all aspects of our programs in these sites. While she continues to use Granada as a home base, Laura is used to travelling wherever duty calls, and is no stranger to frequent flier miles. She speaks fluent English, Italian and French, and speaks conversational Portuguese. Laura's charisma and thirst for new experiences is apparent to all who come in contact with her, and her enthusiasm for her work is contagious. We are privileged to have Laura among our senior international staff and leadership team.
