Several of FERMA’s member associations have industry sector groups for their members. Now for the first time, FERMA has done the same thing on a pan-European basis with a meeting today (Tue). Among the industry sectors covered were banking and financial services, chemicals and pharmaceuticals, automotive and aviation and aerospace.

Alessandro de Felice, Group Risk Manager, Prysmian, who acted as the session moderator, said afterwards: “The questions and topics discussed were really interesting and it was nice to hear the current issues from other industry sectors, issues that you tend to miss out on as you are focused on your own sector. For that reason, the session provided a good learning opportunity for all the attendees.”

“The goal of starting and promoting this cross border network of risk managers belonging to different industry groups has been reached. The feedback I got from the other attendees was really good and they -as I myself- would be really interested in participating in such future exercises.”
