Originally from New York City, David Anderson amassed over three decades of experience as a higher education professional before launching RiskClimate. With early career exposure in student affairs and significant senior level experience in enrollment management, David witnessed extensive risk events, across the higher ed. landscape, that could have been prevented with early and thoughtful identification. After years of observation, a concern for the future stability of higher education drove David to collaborate with similarly minded colleagues to find a comprehensive technological solution that would both simplify and enhance the process of enterprise risk management (ERM). The result of that work is RiskClimate and the development of STORM (Strategic Organizational Risk Management) as ERM software..
"Leading the development of RiskClimate, LLC, the first company to bring enterprise risk management software designed from the ground up for the higher ed. market, is an ongoing privilege and a defining event in both my professional and personal life. I'm passionate about higher education and devoted to the concepts of student empowerment and institutional effectiveness. No student can be empowered and no institution can be effective when risk events are allowed to proliferate to disastrous levels. The answer to this pervasive problem is effective risk forecasting and risk mitigation across the enterprise using a combination of strategic visualization and predictive and prescriptive virtual analytics powered by emerging artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies."
