Rebecca Cady named RIMS Risk Manager of the Year


The Risk & Insurance Management Society Inc. said Tuesday that Rebecca F. Cady, vice president and chief risk officer of the Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, D.C., has been named the 2018 RIMS Risk Manager of the Year.

The award will be presented to Ms. Cady at a ceremonial breakfast at the RIMS 2018 Annual Conference & Exhibition on April 17 in San Antonio, Texas, RIMS said in a statement.

Donald (Sandy) Aspinall Jr., vice president of global risk management for Comcast Corp.; Jennifer Hills, director of the office of risk management services for King County, Washington; and Joseph Meaney Jr., vice president of global insurance and risk engineering for AES Corp., were named to the 2018 RIMS Risk Management Honor Roll.

RIMS said the Risk Manager of the Year program aims to raise the profile of the risk management profession and the outstanding programs the honorees have implemented within their organizations. The program was initiated in 1977, and the Risk Management Honor Roll was added in 1981, RIMS said in the statement.

Any full-time professional who administers risk management programs for a corporation, 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 comprising prior honorees and other risk management and insurance industry leaders.
