Strategic Thought Group Plc appoints Tom Teixiera as VP Enterprise Risk Solutions

Strategic Thought Group plc, the author and vendor of risk management software Active Risk Manager, has appointed Tom Teixeira as VP Enterprise Risk Solutions. This is a new position within the company. Teixeira will be responsible for overseeing the implementation of customers’ enterprise-wide risk management frameworks, as well as expounding the benefits of managing risk to reap reward across the enterprise.

Tom Teixeira joined Strategic Thought from Rolls-Royce where he was Head of Enterprise Risk Management with ultimate responsibility for the implementation of Active Risk Manager (ARM) and corporate risk reporting. Prior to that Teixeira was one of the original members of the Strategic Thought team that kick-started the development of ARM and its related services. He started his career in the Ministry of Defence. During eleven years at the MOD Tom achieved a Masters in Defence Systems Engineering at University College, London and was given an innovation award for developing a risk management system that was rolled out across major programmes.

Tom Teixeira said, “It is an exciting time to join Strategic Thought. Organisations are getting more mature in terms of risk management and therefore focus must be on getting the balance right between risk and reward. Innovation and risk are inseparable. As such Active Risk Manager enables organisations to take not just better qualified risk but more risk from a controlled and informed basis. With a true picture the best companies free underutilised resources to re-invest in growth, create competitive edge and deliver better performance, in both strategic and financial terms. Enterprise Risk Management is about more certainty, better decision making and, ultimately, reward.”

Active Risk Manager is currently in use by many of the world’s largest organisations including Network Rail, Lockheed Martin, Nestle and NASA. Teixeira will drive Strategic Thought’s vision to deliver total risk-reward solutions in throughout industry and government.

Martin Metcalf, Chief Executive Officer of Strategic Thought stated, “Risk management was once a specialist function focused on what might go wrong and how it might be mitigated. We are seeing a shift towards a belief in risk and reward. We are delighted to welcome Tom Teixeira back to Strategic Thought to help spread the word. His experience in both helping to originally design Active Risk Manager and then implementing it within a major organisation like Rolls-Royce will be of enormous benefit to both existing and new customers. Welcome back Tom.”
