- Igor Mikhaylovfrom the Russian association RUSRISK
- Arnout van der Veerfrom the Dutch association NARIM
Both Igor Mikhaylov (2011) and Arnout van der Veer (2010) have received the European risk manager of the year award (Strategic Risk). Helle Friberg (vice-president of DARIM) is a member of the planning committee for the first Nordic FERMA Forum, which will take place in Stockholm 2-5 October 2011.
The President of FERMA, Peter den Dekker, paid tribute to the valuable contribution of two long-serving directors who have stood down from the FERMA board: Marie-Gemma Dequae of the Belgian association BELRIM and Paul Taylor of the UK association AIRMIC. Dequae was den Dekker’s immediate predecessor as president of FERMA, and Paul Taylor is this year’s president of Airmic.
Den Dekker added: “The election of Igor Mikhaylov from RUSRISK shows that FERMA represents the risk managers of a very large part of the European business community. I am looking forward to working with the new team members.”
