PRMIA has named Milosz Glinski, a consultant with Ernst & Young Corporate Finance in Warsaw, Poland, the 2008 PRM Candidate of the Year. The Professional Risk Manager (PRM) designation program is the global standard for the world's top financial risk professionals. The PRM Candidate of the Year award program annually recognizes top PRM candidates from around the world. There are four awards given -- the prestigious PRM Candidate of the Year award, the four other finalists for the top award, the Award of Merit for those whose exam scores across multiple exams distinguish them from the rest of the candidates, and the PRM Focus Award for candidates who have achieved the highest score of the year on the four individual exams of the PRM designation program.
"Every year the number of top quality exam candidates increases and this year was no exception," said David Millar, PRMIA chief operating officer, in a press release. Glinski added in the release, "I am honored to have been selected as PRM Candidate of the Year. I am very glad to learn that many of the fellow finalists also come from outside the risk management profession. This demonstrates the growing importance and awareness of risk management in business organizations around the world."
