LONDON—The Association of Insurance and Risk Managers is setting up a company to promote risk management training.

The new company, Risk Publishing Online, will be headed by David Gamble, who will step down as executive director of London-based AIRMIC, a position he has held since 1998.

Risk Publishing Online will promote PRORIM, the e-learning risk management training course for small-to-medium-sized enterprises that Mr. Gamble helped to develop, and will also develop new training courses, according to Mr. Gamble.

The company will, for example, develop a training program based on AIRMIC's recently published guide for insurance buyers.

Mr. Gamble's replacement likely will be announced in the summer, around the time of AIRMIC's annual conference, according to Geoff Taylor, director of risk management for Nike Inc.'s Europe, Middle East and Africa region.

The association's new executive director is likely to be a risk professional, Mr. Taylor noted.
