Wegener to Succeed Willaert as President of FERMA

June 27, 2019

The Federation of European Risk Management Associations (FERMA) has chosen as its next President Dirk Wegener, global head of Corporate Insurance for Deutsche Bank Group and a member of the German risk management association GVNW.

Wegener, who is currently deputy president of FERMA, will become its president at the 2019 FERMA Risk Management Forum, which will take place in Berlin from Nov. 17-20.

He will take over from Jo Willaert, who in November will have completed four years at the helm of FERMA.

Having started his career in the German insurance industry, Wegener moved into risk management with Daimler Group and then in 2012 with Deutsche Bank. He holds the FERMA rimap European certification for risk professionals.

“It will be a privilege to serve as president of FERMA. I have always recognized the very important role that FERMA plays in lobbying for the interests of corporate risk managers and commercial insurance buyers, and acting as a catalyst for ideas and expertise for the risk manager community,” said Wegener.

“That is ever more important in the age of digitalization,” he added.

“The theme of the FERMA 2019 Forum, ‘Aim for the future: entering a new dimension of risk,’ is a good statement of my vision for my mandate as president. I will support the profession to steadily embrace this future with confidence.”
