The Risk Manager of the Year® award was created in 1977 by Business Insurance to increase the recognition of risk management professionals and the outstanding programs they create and manage for their organizations. The Risk Management Honor Roll® program was added in 1981.
Any full-time executive who administers risk management programs for a corporate, nonprofit institution or government entity is eligible for submission in the Risk Manager of the Year® program. The nominations are judged by an independent panel representing prior honorees and insurance industry leaders.
Annually the Risk Manager of the Year® award is presented during the Risk & Insurance Management Society Inc. Conference & Exhibition.
