Managing Risks and Property Exposure, the Case of Avery Dennison
Collecting and managing exposure information for renewals is a challenging process. Whether it’s the number of locations, the individuals supplying the data, or the volume of it all, for many the process is very time consuming. If you have any of these struggles, join Riskonnect and our special guest Brit Waters, Manager, Risk Management from Avery Dennison and learn how to simplify the process and improve data quality for better business decisions. The days of emailing and consolidating spreadsheets are over. Spend your time on data analysis instead of data collection. In this webinar, you will hear about data challenges, how risk management technology improved Avery Dennison’s business processes and has enabled the Risk Management team to collaborate with the Global Real Estate team. See how data collection within an integrated risk management work platform improves not only property renewals processes, but also business continuity planning and disaster recovery.
Meet The Panel:
Brit Waters, Manager, Risk Management at Avery Dennison, graduated from The Ohio State University in 2003 with a degree in Risk Management and Insurance from the Max Fisher College of Business. Upon graduating, he worked for a privately held broker in the Cleveland, OH area for three years before an opportunity presented itself to work on the insured side of the business. Since then, Brit has worked for two Fortune 300 companies that both have locations and exposures with a global reach and billions of dollars at risk. His primary focus at has been on property and casualty insurance and identifying and implementing programs that help reduce the company’s exposure.
Since joining Avery Dennison in 2010, one of Brit’s initiatives has been to implement a system that will improve the efficiencies and effectiveness of gathering and communicating exposure information to help protect the assets and earnings of the company. This initiative has lead to the implementation of a new Risk Management Information System, Riskonnect, which is now being used by six key functions within the company, and is leading to increased confidence in the data Avery Dennison collects and communicates not only to its insurers, but also to the company’s team members and Board of Director’s, all of which have an impact on Avery Dennison’s total cost of risk.
