Smashwords Interview

How did you first learn about risk management?
While I was still working in the insurance industry, I learned that a colleague had left her job to take a risk management position in the food and beverage industry. I remember thinking that it sounded like a real challenge - trying to manage something that is real, but so hard to quantify in advance. Plus, how would justify taking steps to mitigate risk when you cannot place a real value on losses that haven't happened?
What motivated you to leave the insurance business and take a position in risk management?
By the time an opening came available, I had worked for a few insurance companies. I was becoming a bit frustrated with the process. All insurers have a similar goal - to collect enough premium to cover loss costs, business expenses, and have some left over to distribute to shareholders and keep in reserve for unexpected high-cost losses. Despite the different ways they went about managing the company, they all wanted more premium and complained that legislation made their goals difficult to achieve.
