As Vice President for Finance and Administration at Mount Holyoke College, I worked closely with Beth Carmichael for almost 20 years, and relied on her completely to understand the issues, provide wise counsel, develop practical alternatives, and tactfully bring her colleagues to sensible decisions. She founded the risk management program shared by the four private members of Five Colleges, Inc., and developed it over the years into a broadly-based risk management and compliance program that has become a national model. She now brings her extensive knowledge and experience to her consulting practice. Beth is well known and respected in the field of enterprise risk management and can provide an important resource to institutions who need assistance with the increasingly complex areas of risk management and compliance.
