The election took place at the IFRIMA meeting during the annual RIMS conference, held between 23 and 26 April in Philadelphia.
Willaert said: “During my presidency at IFRIMA, I want to focus on strengthening and reinforcing the dialogue and cooperation among risk management associations worldwide—so ensuring coherence in the actions and development of risk management globally. To do this, I will build on my experience as president of FERMA representing a network of 22 associations in 21 European countries.”
During the meeting, IFRIMA also revealed the admission of a new member, the German risk management association GVNW.
The addition of GVNW brings IFRIMA’s membership to 21 risk management associations worldwide.
