Gert Cruywagen Death – It is with a deep sense of loss that we announce the passing of Gert Cruywagen. Gert had a longstanding relationship with the Institute as an esteemed Fellow member. Honorary Life Membership was conferred to Gert in recognition of his contribution to risk management. In addition, he was one of the first individuals to successfully receive the highly sought-after designation Certified Risk Management Professional (CRM Prof). Gert won the coveted award ‘Risk Manager of the Year’ in 2001 and 2009. After being voted as South Africa’s Risk Manager of the Year for the second time, he founded the Cruywagen-IRMSA Risk Foundation which went on to support countless young risk professionals with internships in South Africa and in the United States of America.
It is with great sadness that we advise the recent passing on of one of IRMSA’s most esteemed members, Dr Gert Cruywagen.
