Cartwright appointed president of Rims
Robert Cartwright is the new president of the Risk and Insurance Management Society, the organisation that hosts the Rims Annual Conference and Exhibition in North America.
Mr Cartwright succeeds Nowell Seaman in the top role. He is the division manager of environmental, health, safety and sustainability for Bridgestone retail operations in the northeast region, and has been Rims director for 10 years.
“In order to advance the risk management profession we must recognise those who came before us,” said Mr Cartwright.
“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.
“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.”
Steve Pottle, director of risk management services at York University, is the vice-president of Rims for 2018.
Bermuda is a regular participant at the Rims Annual Conference and Exhibition, which around 10,000 delegates, including senior executives and risk management professionals. This year’s multi-day North America conference will be held in San Antonio, Texas, in April.
