Scottsdale, Arizona (PRWEB) April 30, 2014
Mark DeLillo, Director of Risk Management for North American homebuilder Taylor Morrison, has been named the recipient of the 2014 Harry and Dorothy Goodell Award, the highest honor in the risk management industry.
Presented by the Risk and Insurance Management Society, Inc. (RIMS), the award is the highest honor awarded by RIMS, recognizing a unique individual who has furthered the goals of risk management and RIMS through outstanding achievement.
DeLillo, a former president of RIMS, has spent more than three decades identifying and assessing risk for some of the nation’s top companies. He’s considered a leader in his field and frequently lectures on risk management topics.
The Goodell Award, established by and named for the first president of the organization, is offered as a lifetime achievement award.
“For risk managers, it doesn’t get any bigger than this honor,” said Sheryl Palmer, CEO and President of Taylor Morrison. “We take our risk management activities very seriously and through Mark’s capabilities we are able to mitigate risk at a much more efficient rate because of his experience and risk management acumen.”
DeLillo has spent more than a decade at Taylor Morrison, serving as Director of Risk Management. During that time, DeLillo has personally overseen all company safety training – including more than 5,000 man-hours of health and safety training in the last year – inclusive of every employee. The company also conducts twice annual third-party health and safety audits to ensure adherence to safety protocols in all divisions. As a result, Taylor Morrison’s injury rate is exceptionally low, Palmer said, pointing to the fact that year-over-year reportable accidents had decreased by 50 percent.
“Mark is an incredibly talented risk manager who possesses a wealth of knowledge,” Palmer said. “His passion and enthusiasm makes him a tremendous asset to Taylor Morrison.”
Prior to joining Taylor Morrison, DeLillo served as vice president of Hilb Rogal Hobbs and Celotex Corporation, where he spent almost a dozen years leading the risk management team. Prior to Celotex, DeLillo served as director of risk management for Eckerd.
DeLillo, who holds a Bachelor of Science degree in business administration from Geneva College, lives in Scottsdale with his wife, Deeda.
