Nine directors have been elected on the basis of their ability to serve the organisation on a European level
The Federation of European Risk Management Associations (FERMA) has elected its first board of directors under new arrangements agreed by its General Assembly.
The directors, who will serve three year terms, are:
Marie-Gemma Dequae, President, Belgium
Paul Taylor, Vice-President, UK
Stefan Sigulla, Vice-President, Germany
Franck Baron, Switzerland
Peter den Dekker, Netherlands
Carl Leeman, Belgium
Nadia Nosova, Russia
Cristina Martinez, Spain
Thierry van Santen, France
FERMA now has 17 member associations across Europe and its General Assembly has now decided to create an executive board with directors elected on the basis of their ability to serve the organisation on a European basis.
Marie-Gemma Dequae, President of FERMA, said: ‘This development is a big step in the future of FERMA. The objective was to reinforce the power of the General Assembly, (representing our members) and to elect directors on the basis of their ability to serve FERMA and risk management with a European dimension.’
A further meeting of the General Assembly will take place in June 2009, when it will elect officers for the year starting in October 2009.
