“The passion for this job, together with the experience acquired in Europe as Vice President of FERMA and the awareness that it is still possible to do a lot when it comes to offering all our colleagues a professional growth that is ever more integrated into Corporate Governance logics, in addition to the importance of attracting both all the corporate personnel that is not yet involved full-time with risk management and consultants, prompted me to run for the Presidency of the Association” says Alessandro De Felice, President of ANRA.
“I would like to thank all my colleagues for their support. From now on I will vigorously pursue the actions that we have already undertaken under Paolo Rubini’s guidance, which are aimed at turning ANRA more and more into the place from where the culture of risk will spread among Italian corporations and at making ANRA the leading stakeholder in Italy in relation to risk management. As an association, we’re growing both in terms of numbers (we are now more than 170 partners) and as a point of reference for institutions, the academic world, the media and companies. Furthermore, I am especially honored to be at the head of ANRA during the year when our country will host the leading international event dedicated to risk management – the FERMA Forum – in Venice, from October 4th– 7th. This will be a unique opportunity both in terms of networking and of testimonials, due to the presence of more than 2000 risk management experts coming from all over Europe and from the rest of the world. Therefore, my invitation to take part in this event in Venice goes to all our members and to all of those who wish to join our Association, with the opportunity to enjoy participating for free to all the sessions, as members of ANRA.”
