Charles McCabe, CRM, RIMS-CRMP (CIA and CRMA Candidate)

I am a seasoned business manager, knowledgeable in both “Business Risk and “Insurance and Risk Management” with additional business development, project management and operations experience across multiple industries. My goal is to help organizations meet their objectives in a variety of capacities with an eye towards managing risk and improving resiliency either directly as a full-time employee or contractor, or on behalf of a consulting company as a sub-contractor or their full-time employee.

My experience and “credentials” cover both “Business Risk” and “Insurance and Risk Management”, which is unique in the industry as many risk management practitioners only cover one of those areas.

My “Business Risk” experience comes from my work as an Internal Auditor at Canadian Pacific Ltd., Canadian Pacific Railway, Hospital for Sick Children, and Canada Life Assurance Company.  At Canada Life, I also managed an operational risk management function, a quasi “second line of defense” scenario in ERM methodologies, with the specific focus of managing the risk of paying disability, dental and extended health claims incorrectly. I managed an 11-person team who consolidated four regional claims management practices for all three categories into one national practice for each category and established corresponding national quality control, training, anti-fraud and reporting functions.

I gained my “Insurance and Risk Management” knowledge academically, by taking university level risk management courses, credentialed through the Global Risk Management Institute, to qualify for the following designations:

–  Canadian Risk Manager (CRM)

–  Certified Risk Management Professional (RIMS-CRMP)

I will earn the following “Business Risk” credentials from the Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) in 2017 to supplement my existing Internal Audit and Operational Risk experience:

–  Certification in Risk Management Assurance (CRMA)

–  Certified Internal Auditor (CIA)

I am currently deploying an IS0 31000 Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) framework at a medium sized town’s food bank while at the same time tightening its internal controls as its volunteer Treasurer.  My ERM knowledge is further informed by written sources like:

–  “ISO 31000 Risk Management – A Practical Guide for SME’s” by John Lark

–  “COSO Enterprise Risk Management – Aligning Risk with Strategy and Performance”, June 2016 Edition

–  “Enterprise Risk Management – Today’s Leading Research and Best Practices for Tomorrow’s Executives” by John Fraser and Betty J. Simkins

–  “Implementing Enterprise Risk Management – Case Studies and Best Practices” by John Fraser, Betty Simkins and Kristina Narvaez
