RIMS inducts two new members into hall of fame


RIMS, the risk management society, and American International Group (AIG) have inducted Lucille “Lucky” Gallagher and Charles “Chuck” Magazine into the Risk Management Hall of Fame (RMHF).

The RMHF serves as a means to maintain the history of the field of risk management and recognizes risk practitioners who have made significant contributions to advancing the discipline. Both honorees were officially inducted at RIMS 2014 Annual Conference & Exhibition in Denver.

The RMHF Selection Committee considers the following criteria for membership in the RMHF: considerable contributions to the field; significant achievements, innovation and trend setting; demonstrated leadership, character and service; and the highest caliber of ethical and professional conduct.

Lucille “Lucky” Gallagher’s 35-year risk management career included numerous professional and personal achievements.

Now retired, Ms. Gallagher was the CEO and Managing Partner of Human Resource Risk Management (HRRM), a firm consulting with employers, healthcare providers, insurance carriers and claims administrators on the reduction of cost of risk relating to human resources.

Charles J. “Chuck” Magazine’s career in risk management began in 1971 with Liberty Mutual Insurance Company. 

His more than 40 year career included experiences in the fields of risk management, insurance, claims, as well as positions at a major insurance company, a state health agency, private healthcare systems, a nationwide restaurant franchise operation, and most recently, the City of Boynton Beach, Florida. In those roles, Mr. Magazine developed and implemented claims programs in the areas of workers’ compensation, property, and casualty insurance.

“The prominence of today’s risk management profession is a credit to industry leaders like Lucky Gallagher and Chuck Magazine who, throughout their careers, have continuously gone above and beyond,” said RIMS executive director Mary Roth.  “It is an honor for us to announce this year’s Risk Management Hall of Fame inductees and recognize them for all that they have achieved for RIMS and the profession.”

Rob Schimek, president and CEO of the Americas, AIG Property Casualty, said: "Each year, AIG has the privilege to partner with RIMS to honor professionals whose careers have helped elevate the role risk management plays in industries across the global economy. And each year the Selection Committee does an outstanding job of choosing truly great risk management leaders who have made their mark on this important field.  This year is no different, with the induction of Lucky and Chuck.”
