  • Risk Management's Role in Mergers & Acquisitions

    Risk practitioners' role in an M&A extends beyond uncovering financial savings. This report reviews the importance of understanding the strategy behind the deal, developing and maintaining productive relationships with stakeholders, effective processes for exchanging information and red flags.

  • RIMS 2017

    Good morning, the Risk Management only session that I had suggested for the 2017 RIMS conference in Philadephia has been accepted by the Annual Conference Programming Committee (ACPC),

    I gladly lead the session, perhaps someone of the team wants to co-chair? It is possible that I am not able to attend the RIMS conference. My company is merging with Tyco on September 2nd and there will be a lot of integration work. Can we please discuss who can take over from me if that would be the case.
