I'm referring to the out-of-the-box, innovative risk managers. They are the ones that take bold, creative and decisive steps to improve their companies and clients.
Maintaining or accepting the status quo never suits them. It's in their DNA to make a difference, to effect change. The bigger the challenge, the better for this group. They are our 2011 Risk InnovatorTM Award winners.
We at Risk & Insurance®selected 19 risk management professionals from a cross-section of industries as our risk innovators this year. Eight of them also are designated as a Responsibility Leader® , meaning their leadership has had a powerful impact on their colleagues and the communities where they live.
We profile each Risk InnovatorTM to recognize their individual risk management achievements, with the hope each provides inspiration for even more innovation in the workplace.
Our innovators serve as a reminder that brainstorming new and creative ideas, and turning those ideas into unique products and services, provides the lifeblood for every business big or small.
It takes courage to be an innovator because there are always risks to manage. But innovators understand how to leverage risks in order to gain substantial rewards for their businesses and customers.
We congratulate and encourage our Risk InnovatorTM winners and realize there are many more of them in the risk management profession worthy of this honor than the group whose stories fill these pages.
