RIMS welcomes 2018 president


Robert Cartwright has been appointed as the new president of the Risk Management Society (RIMS) for the 2018 term.

Cartwright, who is concurrently the division manager of environmental, health, safety and sustainability for Bridgestone Retail Operations in the Northeast region, started the new role as of 1 January.

The new president has been a member of RIMS for over 25 years and has served on its board of directors for 10 years.

Cartwright, recipient of the 2009 RIMS Richard W Bland award for exceptional contributions to the Society’s legislative initiatives, said: “Risk management has evolved leaps and bounds from just a decade ago and that progress is a direct result of our predecessors’ passion and perseverance.”

He added: “Today, industry professionals have the same opportunity to become trailblazers, increasing organisational awareness of risk management’s diversity and value. As we work to establish our individual legacies, together we will strengthen and solidify the collective legacy of the global risk management community.”
