The International Federation of Risk and Insurance Management Associations (IFRIMA) has elected Jo Willaert, the current president of the Federation of European Risk Management Associations (FERMA), as its president for a term of two years.
Willaert said: "During my presidency at IFRIMA, I want to focus on strengthening and reinforcing the dialogue and cooperation among risk management associations worldwide - so ensuring coherence in the actions and development of risk management globally.
"To do this, I will build on my experience as president of FERMA since 2015 representing a network of 22 associations in 21 European countries."
The election took place at the IFRIMA meeting during the annual RIMS conference in Philadelphia last week.
IFRIMA has also announced the admission of the German risk management association GVNW. This takes IFRIMA membership to a total of 21 risk management associations.
