The reserved lunch of Mauricio Macri and his team: who is who in the "group of eight" of the former president


After getting off his candidacy, he received them in the privacy of his home in Acassuso. What role does each one play within the Macrista troop?

Just a couple of hours after announcing the resignation of his presidential candidacy,

Mauricio Macri

gathered his troops at his home in Acassuso, in the north of the province of Buenos Aires, and entertained them with lunch, as a way of gratitude, but also in what was interpreted as a farewell taking into account that many will continue to be linked to PRO candidates in the electoral act.

There were

eight people who accompanied Macri at this time

, especially since he left the Presidency and limited his work team.

Part of a small table that, in some cases, will take a different course towards 2023, although there will be those who continue to report to the former president, even outside of a position.

"Thank you for so much, @mauriciomacri", published on his Instagram account, Darío Nieto, private secretary of the former president, Buenos Aires legislator and one of the people in his closest circle for years.

The post was accompanied by a photo with the rest of the protagonists of the image.

From left to right were

Fernando de Andreis, Gustavo Gómez Repetto, Julieta Herrero, Mora Jozami, Julián Gallo, Fátima Micheo, the aforementioned Nieto and Hernán Iglesias Illa

De Andreis

is the most familiar face in the photo.

Her relationship with Macri dates back a long time, since her half-sister is Yvonne Bordeu, the ex-wife of the former president.

A 46-year-old River fan, he was a Buenos Aires legislator, president of the City Tourism Agency and general secretary of the Presidency of the Nation between 2015 and 2019.

As with


, who has been working with

María Eugenia Vidal

since January, De Andreis is one of the brains behind

Jorge Macri

's campaign for the Buenos Aires head of government, to which his cousin Mauricio is betting, who has already lowered his request to Horacio Rodríguez Larreta to deactivate the other candidacies that emerged in the PRO.

Gustavo Gómez Repetto

is another of Mauricio Macri's sides for many years.

He has been working within the PRO teams for more than 13 years, always in the field of communication, first with Guillermo Dietrich, in the Ministry of Transportation of the City of Buenos Aires, later moving to Nación and, from 2017, integrating the team of the then Chief of Staff Marcos Peña, as Undersecretary of Media and Public Communication.

After Macri's departure from the Presidency, Gómez Repetto became his main communication reference, accompanying him in each of the former president's activities in the country, coordinating his agenda with the media and being part of that strict small table.

Hernán Iglesias Illa

is another history of macrismo.

Originally a journalist, with steps in graphic media such as El Cronista, in 2004 he traveled to New York where he began to develop his career as a writer.

In 2013 he returned to the country and joined Macri's campaign team, as one of the brains from communication and later assuming the position of Undersecretary of Strategic Communication of the Chief of Staff.

In those years he wrote the books "Golden Boys" (2007), Miami (2010), American Sarmiento (2013) and Cambiamos (2016).

He is currently the general editor of Seoul digital magazine.

Julián Gallo

is the digital strategy expert who has been working with Macri for a long time.

Also a journalist, member of the National Academy of Journalism, he worked for Clarín and La Nación, and also for international media, especially in Mexico.

He has been a member of macrismo since the days of the City Government Headquarters and has given numerous TedX talks.

Since the PRO began, at the beginning of the century,

Mora Jozami

has been working .

In 2002, and until 2007, he began working as head of the Public Opinion area.

But from the arrival of Macri to the Buenos Aires mayor's office, he went on to coordinate and direct that team, until 2015.

Hernán Iglesias Illia, another of the former president's loyalists within the Communication area.

When Macri became president, Jozami became Undersecretary of Public Opinion, while once the term ended she returned to the private sphere, to lead the Public Opinion subject at the Torcuato Di Tella University, where she graduated in Relations International in 1999.

Fátima Micheo

is another of the faces not so publicly known, but who have been working with Macri for a long time.

Like many members of the PRO, she comes from Cippec and joined the team as soon as the former president of Boca took over as head of government, in December 2007.

She was coordinator of Community Relations, then operational manager of media auditing and since 2015 she joined Casa Rosada as Undersecretary of Presidential Communication.

After the end of Macri's presidency, she is a member of the Cambiar es Posible (Cepla) foundation.

Julieta Herrero

became known in 2016, when Macri appointed her General Director of Speech and went on to review in detail each of the words that the then president communicated publicly.

Like most of those who were part of the photo with Macri, he worked within the De Andreis team at the General Secretariat of the Presidency.

But he had been part of the macrismo since its dawn, in the city government.
