The Federation of European Risk Management Associations (FERMA) has learned with sadness of the death of Eduardo Romero, former member of the FERMA board, president of the Spanish risk management association AGERS from 1999-2003 and former risk manager of the Grupo Dragados.
In addition to his role in AGERS, Romero was a strong supporter of the work of FERMA, and was responsible for organising the 2001 FERMA Forum in Barcelona. FERMA President Jorge Luzzi, who knew him well, said: “Eduardo Romero was very involved in the development of FERMA as it is today. Even though he had retired, he was still active in the industry. He was one of us and we are very sorry for his loss.”
FERMA Executive Manager Florence Bindelle said: “I had the opportunity to work with Eduardo when he was President of the FERMA Forum in Barcelona in 2001. He was passionate about what he did, a good promoter of European issues within AGERS and very welcoming to all. We will miss him.”
In 1999, Romero received a life time achievement award from Strategic Risk. He also served as a jury member for the important Spanish and international Julio Sáez prize in risk management.
