Willy Røed from Proactima took recently over as leader of ARMSG – Applied Risk Management Speciality Group – one of 17 specialist groups within the Society of Risk Analysis. The event took place at a conference being held in New Orleans this week.
“It is obviously honorable to take over the leadership position for ARMSG. It means new challenges and greater opportunities to influence further developments”, said the new leader, who really looks forward to the next two years.
He believes that one of the reasons why he was appointed leader is the combination of academic and practical background and not least his long experience from various parts of Proactima. He has a Professor II position at the University of Stavanger, where he is responsible for the subjects “Applied risk assessment” and “Accident investigation methodology”.
Great influence on development
The Society for Risk Analysis (SRA) has a major influence on the development of the venture. SRA has branches throughout the world, both in Europe (SRA Europe) and in the Nordic region (SRA Nordic). The conference Willy attends includes all the regions of the organization, which means it is a major conference with participants from all over the world. Here, all industries are represented, both private companies, consultants and public sector.
