IRM said it only has a handful of members in SE Asia but that the organisation is “keen to develop relationships in the region”.
UK-based Institute of Risk Management (IRM) has signalled its intention to launch a major push into the Asia Pacific region by announcing Saman Bandara SIRM, Partner, Head of Insurance, Forensics and IT Risk & Analytics at EY Vietnam, as their new global ambassador for Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos.
In a statement, IRM said it only has a handful of members in SE Asia but that the organisation is “keen to develop relationships in the region”.
Bandara said: “The Indochina region is undoubtedly one of the most promising regions in the world in terms of the opportunities for businesses; however, in terms of management of risk there is a long journey to go compared to other developed markets.
“Development and appreciation of proper risk management could make this region even more promising,” he added.
Bandara, along with other global ambassadors will act as local IRM experts who will help students and professionals wanting to make a career in the risk profession by sharing knowledge and developing local networking groups.
