Strategic Thought Group (STG), developer of the leading Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) software package Active Risk Manager (ARM), has appointed Emma Price as Director, Risk Advisory. Emma’s extensive knowledge and experience of risk management in action at major corporates makes her the ideal person to act as a risk advisor and ambassador for the profession in this increasingly business critical discipline.
Price is a highly qualified and experienced risk professional. Originally an honours law graduate with an MSc in Business, she has worked in Europe and Australia, most recently with Rio Tinto and as Executive Director at Ernst & Young in Melbourne. Prior to this she spent several years with Airbus working in the UK and France. Having used ARM during her time at Airbus, Ms Price joined Strategic Thought as a Risk Consultant before moving to Australia. Five years later she has returned to Strategic Thought and the UK with extensive experience of implementing ERM strategies and frameworks, addressing both risk processes and cultural practices that underpin business performance.
Ms Price is a Certified Practising Risk Manager (CPRM). The CPRM is the licence for Risk Managers awarded by the Risk Management Institution of Australasia (RMIA) and is highly regarded in the industry in defining leaders in risk management.
“I am really pleased to be taking up this Risk Advisory role with Strategic Thought at a time when the need for effective risk management has definitely made it onto the board agenda. The discipline is coming of age and I’m looking forward to driving the debate on risk management and how it can help improve business performance,” commented Price.
Lynton Barker, executive chairman of STG added, “Emma is an important addition to our team. Her practical experience across both public and private sector sectors will provide valuable knowledge on how risk management can be used to improve certainty, increase transparency and underpin corporate strategy. This appointment is in line with our objective to ensure our customers are best placed to deliver positive returns from their investment in risk management.”
Enterprise Risk Management is increasingly recognized among the most important corporate governance and management tools. It is a means to identify, analyze, evaluate and respond to risk across an organization in an integrated and sustainable manner.
