Helping Risk Managers Communicate the Value of Environmental Due Diligence

Presented by

Rick Ferguson, Brian Ginter & John Rybak

About this talk

Environmental risk managers at banks understand why due diligence is important to protect the bank from collateral devaluation and liability exposure, but how well do they communicate this value up the chain? Environmental due diligence is important, along with evaluating a borrower’s creditworthiness and getting an appraisal done, but only in the broader context of originating loans. The difficulty in bridging the gap between environmental risk managers and loan officers/senior management was identified as one of the key challenges faced by risk management professionals, particularly at community banks. This webinar will provide lenders with actionable intell to help them educate senior management and loan officers to foster a greater understanding across the bank of the importance in understanding environmental risk and the liability the bank can face if environmental due diligence is not properly addressed. Join us for this webinar as seasoned insiders selected from the ranks of a large bank, a regional bank and a community bank share their experiences in communicating the value of environmental due diligence internally at their institutions. Panelists: -Rick Ferguson, P.G., Chief Environmental Compliance Officer, SVP, U.S. Bank -Brian Ginter, VP & CCIM, Appraisal/Environmental Group, Burke & Herbert Bank -John Rybak, SVP Environmental Risk Manager, BB&T
