Joseph R. Buick, a broker with the Hylant Group in Toledo, Ohio, made his mark in risk management education history as he became the 1,000th individual to earn the prestigious Certified Risk Managers (CRM) designation, the organization that issues the designation announced.
The CRM designation recognizes individuals who have demonstrated advanced risk management knowledge and expertise by attending five, 20-hour courses and passing rigorous examinations in the areas of
principles and practice of risk management, risk control, analysis and finance.
Buick will receive recognition of his status as the 1,000th CRM at a special presentation during the CRM conferment at the James K. Ruble MEGAbration seminar in Dallas, Texas, this coming October. The Hylant Group will be given a scholarship to a future CRM course.
Buick entered the insurance/risk management industry with Hylant Group eight years ago. The larger, middle market accounts he now focuses on require a risk management approach and having the most up-to-date, practical knowledge available, Buick explained.
The CRM Program, which began in 1996, is an independent education and designation program designed for professionals in risk management and related fields, such as accounting, finance, insurance, loss control, legal, and claims. Certified Risk Managers International is a member of the National Alliance for Insurance Education and Research.
