From the statements this seems like largely a Pichot driven initiative. Putting someone that is passionate and focused in a role with authority

Dan Payne is pulling double duty. He replaces Agustín Pichot as chairman of Americas Rugby and Tom Jones as Americas Regional Manager. South America already has a regional manager in Santiago Ramallo.

Also, Rugby Americas was created in 2015 to run the Americas Rugby Championship. This year the organization will also oversee the Americas Rugby Challenge and the Americas Sevens Series. It doesn’t sit on top of the regional governing bodies: it’s just an entity where WR, RAN and SR negotiate and manage joint ventures.

I would imagine things would change a little if RWC qualifiers were ever merged, which I think is more and more likely going to happen in the future. There's going to be very little need for separate regional bodies if the AR Championship expands to more than just the AR Challenge next year.
