The London-headquartered Institute of Risk Management has appointed Sydney-based independent risk consultant Gareth Byatt as a global ambassador for Australia and Asia Pacific.
Mr Byatt is currently a member of the IRM and an active member of the Infrastructure Risk and Innovation Special Interest Groups (SIGs), said the institute in a statement last week. He has worked across Australia and Asia Pacific for the past ten years.
He holds an MBA and is a visiting lecturer for the University of New South Wales, Australia for Masters and Undergraduate degree programmes and also serves on the New South Wales Committee of the Engineers Australia Risk Engineering Society.
Mr Byatt said, “It is a pleasure and an honour to be part of the Global Ambassadors network for the IRM. I look forward to continuing to work with my fellow IRM colleagues and members and to helping people across Australia and the Asia Pacific region to leverage the services that the IRM provides.”
IRM chair Nicola Crawford said, “Risk management in Australia and the Asia Pacific region is developing at an exponential rate and has a huge bank of talent coming out of the education system – now is as good a time as any to help develop risk management to ensure business longevity and success.
“I’d like to thank Gareth for his commitment to the IRM and really look forward to working with him and the other newly appointed ambassadors going forward.”
