Fox, ARM, senior director of risk management at Convergys Corporation and immediate past chair of RIMS ERM Development Committee; Jeffrey Vernor, ARM, global risk manager at Russell Investment Group and chair of RIMS ERM Development Committee; and Steven Minsky, CEO of LogicManager and author and producer of the report.
