Reporting to the Deputy Executive Director, the CRO is responsible for overseeing and directing the ERM program.  The CRO is a member of the senior leadership team and leads a team of three.  The successful candidate will be a confident leader who possesses an ability to communicate effectively and establish collaborative working relationships with many people across the organization.
