Congratulations on Your New Job Card and Pen

The Federation of European Risk Management Associations (FERMA) has elected Charlotte Hedemark as the association's next president.

Ms. Hedemark is a risk management expert at SAP and is currently vice president and a member of the FERMA board. Her tenure as president will begin on October 17 at the closing of the FERMA Seminar 2023 in Belgium. She will succeed Dirk Wegener following the completion of his four-year tenure as FERMA president.

"It is an honor to be elected president of FERMA," Ms. Hedemark said in a statement. "During a period of unprecedented challenges for corporations across Europe, the criticality of FERMA's role in representing the interests of its member associations and raising the profile of the risk profession has never been greater.

"As we look forward during this time of uncertainty, FERMA will continue to act as a strategic radar for the industry, monitoring developments, informing associations, and addressing policymakers," Ms. Hedemark said. "In my role, I will work to ensure FERMA continues to be a rallying point for our members as we all strive to be risk leaders."

Ms. Hedemark has been a central figure in the ongoing development of FERMA in recent years. She has worked in Global Risk & Assurance Services (GR&AS) at SAP for more than 15 years and is presently a Risk Management Expert in Customer Success Risk Assurance Services. SAP's Risk Assurance (CSRA) team systematically manages and monitors risks in the context of sales and services activities that may impact the successful execution of the company's strategy.

"I am delighted that Charlotte has been elected to the position of president," Mr. Wegener said in the statement. "Her deep understanding of the risk management function and commitment to evolving and elevating the profession through her involvement with the wider risk community make her the ideal candidate to take the helm at FERMA as we help guide our members and represent their interests at all levels."
