Meeting Topic & Overview:

Supply Chain Risk and Contingent Business Interruption 

Can something outside of your company’s control wreak havoc on your ability to satisfy your customers? As lean manufacturing is more common than not in the current environment and revenues are up across the board, there is a high risk of a breakdown in any part of your supply chain effecting revenue. We will discuss some ways to begin analyzing your companies supply chain and questions you can ask. How does Contingent Business Interruption fit into the discussion and what are some things to consider?

Chris Long

Chris is responsible for providing Business Risk Consulting (BRC) support to FM Global’s Washington D.C. and Philadelphia offices. BRC services support client risk management efforts in a variety of ways, primarily helping clients improve the resilience of their business by identifying key processes that drive profitability, quantifying related exposures, and identifying strategies to mitigate the impact from a potential disruption. 

Chris joined FM Global in January of 2017. Prior to joining FM Global, Chris was a Finance Strategy and Operations Consultant at Deloitte Consulting, specializing in business process improvement and financial systems modernization.

As a member of the Business Risk Consulting Group, Chris is primarily responsible for conducting Business Impact Analyses, working in partnership with FM Global clients, to fully identify and quantify the customer’s financial exposures as they relate to property and business interruption loss potential.  The analyses Chris performs often result in the identification of significant exposures that were previously unknown or not fully understood by the customer, which potentially has a material impact to risk management decisions.
