RIMS appoints new president

Risk management society RIMS has appointed Rick Roberts as president for the 2015 term.

Roberts is the director of risk management and employee benefits for Ensign-Bickford Industries. He has been a member of RIMS for 25 years and on its board of directors for seven years.

Previously, Roberts served as the society’s vice president and board liaison to RIMS external affairs committee.

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

“RIMS greatest asset is its members, an engaged and generous network of professionals who willingly share their experiences to help colleagues better prepare their organizations for the unknown. With a focus on the society’s long-term strategy, we will continue to strengthen our networks, enhancing our ability to deliver thought-leading content to the global risk management community.”
