Álvaro Pérez Intriago was born in Quito, Ecuador, on August 10, 1936.[3] He became a lawyer before entering politics.[3] Pérez served on the Quito city council from 1967 to 1970.[2] He then became the Provincial Prefect of Pichincha Province, the head of the province, from 1970 to 1976.[2]

Pérez served as Mayor of Quito, the nation's capitol, from 1978 to 1982. Pérez oversaw the construction of the highway to the Valle de Los Chillos, as well as two of the city's major avenues, Occidental and Eloy Alfaro.[1][3] He also spearheaded the building of the Mercado Mayorista and moved one of the city's bus terminals, Terminal Terrestre de Cumandá, to the outskirts of Quito.[1]

In 2002, Xavier Neira Menéndez, the presidential candidate for the Social Christian Party, chose Pérez as his running mate for Vice President of Ecuador.[1][3] The Neira-Pérez ticket placed fifth in the 2002 presidential election, receiving 553,106 votes, or 12.1%, and did not advance to the presidential runoff election (which was won by Lucio Gutiérrez).[1]

In 2005, Pérez was appointed Ambassador to the United States by President Alfredo Palacio, but Perez never took office.[1]

Pérez died in Quito on August 2, 2016, at the age of 79.[1][3]
