RIMS Announces 2015 President Rick Roberts, Officers and Board

January 06, 2015
Rick Roberts, RF, ALCM, ARM, ARME, CPCU, will lead RIMS as president for the 2015 term, the Society has announced. RIMS has also named other 2015 Board of Directors officers and introduced a new board member and incumbent board members.

As president, Mr. Roberts leads a global not-for-profit organization representing more than 3,500 industrial, service, nonprofit, charitable, and government entities throughout the world. Founded in 1950, RIMS brings networking, professional development, and education opportunities to its membership of more than 11,000 risk management professionals who are located in more than 60 countries.

“No two days as a risk professional are ever the same,” said Mr. Roberts. “Current events, new technologies, and global initiatives continue to keep risk professionals searching for the latest industry information and best practices.”

In a recent interview with Business Insurance, how to deal with terrorism is the key challenge he identified for risk management professionals in 2015. The expiration and potential for reauthorization of the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act and reinsurance taxation are legislative issues he feels should be a focus of risk managers in the year ahead.

In addition to Mr. Roberts, other RIMS 2015 officers are vice president, Julie C. Pemberton, ARM, Director, Enterprise Risk and Insurance Management, Outerwall Inc.; treasurer, Robert Cartwright Jr., CRM, Safety and Health Manager, Bridgestone Retail Operations, LLC; and corporate secretary, Jennifer Santiago, ARM, Director of Insurance, Novartis Corporation.
