Alexandria Colindres appointed as The Registry of Aruba CEO


After almost eight years with The Registry of Aruba, Alexandria Colindres has been appointed as CEO, moving from her current role as COO. Her father, the company’s founder, Jorge Colindres, will stay on as the executive chairman and CEO of ARG (Aviation Registry Group of Companies), the registry’s parent.

Relationship building is top on the list of things Colindres wants to achieve as CEO of The Registry of Aruba. “I think it is very important to have that personalised relationship with clients,” she told CJI London 2021 online conference on Thursday (February 4th).

Colindres said 2020 was one of the busiest years for the company. She hopes 2021 will be the same. ”We’ve been seeing a lot of cargo transactions, which we have been focussing on. We have had a very busy January.”

Colindres started at the registry in the summer of 2013, in the public relations department.

Her Bachelor of Fine Arts from Tufts University, Massachusetts and an MBA in Art Management at Columbia College, Missouri have “shaped her drive to transform the company’s brand identity to attract new clients”.

The new CEO said “in a weird way” she is grateful for the pandemic in a business sense as it has enabled her to be able to push her technological agenda. This meant the registry has been able to bounce back quicker from the initial impact, according to Colindres.
