Think tank Tomorrow’s Company, Good Governance Forum members and Airmic have called for organisations to consider appointing an executive risk leader because boards are failing to navigate today’s increasingly complex risk landscape.

The call for action is laid out in a new report entitled Tomorrow’s Risk Leadership: Delivering Risk Resilience And Business Performance, published this week.

At the report’s launch, a range of experts called on businesses to rethink risk leadership to enable organisations to meet the demands of today’s fast-paced, interconnected world and avoid future crises.
