Background Information

Polla Chilena de Beneficencia S.A. is an autonomous state-owned company which belongs to the System of Public Companies (SEP, for its Spanish) directly depending on CORFO (The Chilean Economic Development Agency).
From 1989, it becomes a corporation, with CORFO (99%) and the Fisco (The Public Tax Administration) (1%) being its two shareholders.
Its line of business is expressly set forth under Law No 18.851, and it is related to lottery games, sports pools wagers and other drawings of random numbers authorized by law.
Due to its legal nature as a state-owned company, with 100% participation of the government, the budget and financing standards applied to state-owned companies will be also applied to Polla Chilena, reason why its action is strictly within the context of the financial programming of the Public Sector, in accordance with the economic policy formulations given by the government.
One of the most significant supports for the management of this successful company is the professionalism and excellence of the 132 employees, out of which 18 are executives and middle management, 51 are professional and 63 are administrative; all of which, are headed by a Board appointed by the President of the Republic.
The Polla Chilena Board of Directors is composed of 7 members chaired by Veronica Montellano Cantuarias.
The company’s executive management is headed by the general manager, Santiago Gonzalez Larrain, followed by the assistant manager, Cesar Gomez Viveros.
It is impossible not to mention, as key players of the Polla Chilena management, its more than 2 thousand agents who integrate the company’s Official Agent Network, which through history has been the visible face of this institution.The great challenge of those who are part of the Polla Chilena structure is to consolidate the company as an excellence model, both at public and private levels, through its business and institutional management, as well as its charitable character. Similarly, Polla Chilena de Beneficencia continues and will continue working on its modernization and leadership projects in the entertainment industry of gaming.
