Global project management association, the Project Management Institute (PMI), has named Dr David Hillson (pictured) the recipient of the PMI Eric Jenett Project Management Excellence Award.
Better known as the Risk Doctor, Hillson received the accolade for his outstanding contribution to the practice of the project management profession demonstrating leadership and initiative while advancing both theoretical concepts and practical application. Hillson is globally renowned for developing the field of project risk management.
The award is named in honour of Eric Jennet, one of the five founders and a former president of PMI, who died recently in October 2011 aged 88.
“I’m pleased to follow in Eric Jenett’s footsteps and make my own small contribution to the project management world, at least in my own specialism of risk management,” said Hillson.
Hillson has more than 25 years’ experience in risk consulting with clients worldwide in a range of sectors. He is also a well known speaker, a leader in the PMI Risk Community of Practice, and was made a PMI Fellow in 2010.
