To all my faithful readers – first, I want to offer apologies that I did not post anything new this week. I have a great many topics in process and had every intention, but as I’ll explain in a minute, this week was a bit overwhelming (in a very good way.)
Second, I wanted to let everyone know about a major new chapter that began this week. After several years managing my own risk advisory practice I have enthusiastically accepted the position of Managing Director of Enterprise Risk Management with Accume Partners, a highly respected advisory firm in risk, internal audit and compliance. Over the last several years I have been approached by a variety of firms interested in having me manage some or all of their risk advisory practice. While many of these opportunities were intriguing, some with colleagues I deeply respect, none seemed like an exact fit for what I would be looking for. But after several meetings with the CEO of Accume, Mark Lindig, I was so overwhelmingly impressed with his vision, values and strategic plan that I found it an easy decision to accept this position.
I started with the company this past week and am still in the process of getting acclimated. The demand for risk management thought leadership is incredibly high right now and Accume is positioned very well to be the industry leader in best practices. I am extremely excited to bring my skills and expertise to amend the tremendous talent already at Accume and look forward to being able to serve clients with an even broader range of resources.
Please know that new blog posts will be coming shortly and will continue on both ERM Advantage and OpRisk Advantage. There is still much to be discovered in the field of risk management, and I look forward to continuing to bring insight and inspiration to fellow practitioners in this thing we call risk management.
