    Rims Ceo Mary Roth Announces Retirement Plan

    Published on October 16, 2021

    Thirty-Six-Year Risk Leader Set to Retire Following RIMS 2022 Annual Conference & Exhibition

    NEW YORK – After a remarkable 36-year career dedicated to creating opportunities for and advancing the global risk management profession, RIMS CEO Mary Roth has announced her plans to retire following RIMS 2022 Annual Conference & Exhibition.  The timeline is fluid and Ms. Roth will not vacate her role until a suitable candidate is in place and the transition is complete.

    The process for making this announcement began in 2019 but, as the global pandemic significantly impacted RIMS business and its members, Ms. Roth determined that it was imperative to lead the Society through the immediate challenges and delay the announcement to this date. RIMS Board of Directors and a specially formed RIMS search committee will work with Russell Reynolds Associates, one of the world’s leading executive search firms, to find RIMS next leader.

    “As RIMS CEO for the last 17 years, Mary and her team have helped create a path for risk management’s evolution, providing my fellow risk practitioners and me with the power to impact organizational strategies, set professional goals and achieve them,” said RIMS 2021 President Ellen Dunkin. “The best way RIMS Board can thank Mary for all that she has given to this Society is to ensure that this transition process is carried out flawlessly and that we position RIMS for continued success for years to come.  On a personal note, I would like to congratulate Mary and wish her all the best in this next chapter of her life.”

    In a letter to RIMS membership, Mary Roth stated:

    “I cannot express enough what RIMS has meant to me and what a heart-wrenching decision this was. In addition to leading the development and delivery of thought-leading risk knowledge, professional education, a globally accredited certification, career growth opportunities and advancing a mission critical to this profession for over three decades, I have made lifelong friendships.  Together, we have scaled the toughest challenges, achieved great success and built a professional community that genuinely cares about becoming better, and more importantly, about lifting each other up.

    RIMS Board of Directors and Staff are committed to this Society’s future success. I have witnessed their perseverance, dedication, and skill in action, especially over the last year, and am confident that their strategic ingenuity will continue to fortify the Society’s position as the world’s leading risk management association.

    I want to thank this community for their dedication to RIMS and their passion for risk management.  You have made my RIMS career rewarding, special and unforgettable.  For more than 70 years, RIMS has created opportunities and advantages for the world’s risk management community to excel and elevate, and I know that this proud tradition will continue for years to come.”
