Katya Diederich is the new president of YPFB

The Government appointed Katya Diederich as the new Executive President of Yacimientos Petrolíferos Fiscales Bolivianos (YPFB) to replace Richard Botello, who resigned this morning for health reasons. Diederich’s appointment is a “historic milestone” at Yacimientos because, for the first time, a woman will hold the position. Katya is a business administrator, and has a vast experience in the Bolivian hydrocarbon sector since 1997, mainly in the company YPFB Chaco, then in GasTrans Boliviano (GTB) and YPFB Transporte, respectively.
