RIMS appoints new 2017 president


RIMS, the risk management society of the US, today has appointed Nowell Seaman as president for the 2017 term.

Seaman is the director of Global Risk Management for Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan. He has been a member of RIMS for 21 years and on its board of directors for nine years. Previously, he served as the society’s vice president.

He also served as the chair of the RIMS Canada Council in 2003-2005, a director of RIMS Saskatchewan Chapter from 1997-2007 and chaired the secretariat responsible for the creation of the McGannon Foundation.

“The narrative is changing,” said Seaman. “More organizations are recognizing the positive side of risk. They are witnessing the power of risk management and its ability to identify new resources, new processes and new strategies that can take the organization to new heights.

“RIMS has positioned itself as a leader in the industry. For years, it has provided practitioners with the tools and resources to advance professionally. As president, it is my goal to ensure that the Society’s momentum continues forward and that, together, our global network is prepared for whatever may come next.”
