Rodney Escobar Named PRIMA’s 2017 Public Risk Manager of the Year
The Public Risk Management Association (PRIMA) awarded its coveted Public Risk Manager of the Year award to Rodney Escobar. Escobar accepted his award during PRIMA’s 2017 Annual Conference in Phoenix, AZ.
Escobar, Risk Manager for the State of Tennessee’s Department of the Treasury, was chosen as this year’s Public Risk Manager of the Year by a panel of his peers for his innovative risk management programs.
“Rodney’s commitment to the safety of his entity and leadership within the Division of Claims and Risk Management made him a standout candidate in an extremely competitive field this year,” said Marshall Davies, PhD, PRIMA executive director. “His programs have had a positive impact not only on the state of Tennessee, but everyone who lives there.”
Escobar has been the Director, Division of Claims and Risk Management (DCRM), since 2013.
The Public Risk Manager of the Year award was established by PRIMA in 1994 to honor a risk manager who has effectively coordinated and managed a risk management program for a public entity facing out-of-the-ordinary challenges.
