Washington, DC, August 13, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- John A. Wheeler, Founder and Managing Principal at Wheelhouse Advisors LLC, will present at the upcoming 2008 Operational Risk Management Summit for Financial Institutions. The event will take place October 15-17, 2008 at the American Strategic Management Institute in Arlington, Virginia.
“With financial institutions facing unprecedented risks across the globe, Boards of Directors, Executive Management and Business Unit Management need a solid risk framework to enable quick and decisive action” said Wheeler. “Most financial institutions as well as companies in other industries have made extraordinary investments in people, process and technology to meet individual regulatory mandates, yet with very little coordination. This fragmented approach to managing risk has created a great deal of confusion among key stakeholders and significantly impeded many institutions’ ability to address risk events efficiently and effectively.”
Wheeler, who speaks regularly on Enterprise Risk Management and Control, will provide conference participants with a blueprint for integrating risk management programs to successfully navigate the evolving regulatory landscape while improving a company’s financial performance.
“As evidenced by several high profile risk events that have led to disastrous consequences for firms over the past year, having a solid risk framework is a must” said Wheeler. “My presentation will provide a way forward for companies looking to strengthen and integrate their risk management programs.”
Members of the media are invited to attend Wheeler’s address. Copies of his presentation will also be made available.
