RIMS 2023 President named as Jennifer Santiago

RIMS, the risk management society, has announced that Jennifer Santiago will lead the Society as president for the 2023 term. Ms. Santiago is the Director, Risk Management & Safety at Wakefern Food Corp.

Previously, Ms. Santiago was the Assistant Vice President & Chief Risk Officer (CRO) at The Pennsylvania State University.

Commenting on her appointment Ms. Santiago said:

“The road to organizational resilience starts with leadership of the risk management professional. Around the world, risk professionals have taken the initiative, stepping up to lead strategies that empower smart decision-making and innovation.

“However, current risks show no sign of stabilizing and this highly uncertain environment will require risk leaders to lean on each other, to share experiences and embrace diverse thoughts and perspectives to successfully address them. RIMS is an invaluable platform for risk management collaboration, and I am honored to help ensure that it continues to deliver opportunities that unite, inspire and build a safer, more resilient world.”

Ms. Santiago has been a RIMS member for over 15 years, serving on the Society’s Board of Directors since 2014. She earned her BA and MBA from Rutgers University and Montclair State University, respectively, and holds a RIMS-Certified Risk Management Professional certification (RIMS-CRMP). She is also a member of the George Mason University Chief Risk Officer Advisory Council.
