Newark, Calif. — Risk Management Solutions Inc. (RMS), a provider of products
and services for catastrophe risk management, announced that Dr. Craig Schultz has joined the firm as VP of product management. Schultz will play a central role in guiding the development of RMS' global catastrophe modeling capabilities and will focus specifically on ensuring that the models enable robust decision making by RMS clients in the context of both the increasingly sophisticated use of models by the insurance industry, as well as the inherent uncertainties in quantifying catastrophe risk.

Schultz most recently served in a senior technology leadership position at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. During his 13 years at the lab, he led the development of risk models for Department of Defense and Department of Energy analysts across a broad range of environmental security and national security risk areas. Most recently, Schultz led the team that launched the laboratory's advanced architectures testbed, assembling high-performance, next-generation software and hardware architectures for complex, data-intensive modeling applications.   

"Craig has a wealth of experience in leading fast-paced, multi-disciplinary programs to design and develop both complex risk models, as well as the applications that enable those models to be used for making timely and confident decisions about risk," says Paul VanderMarck, chief products officer at RMS. "We are delighted that he will be applying his significant talent and experience to developing solutions to the challenges faced by our clients in understanding and managing catastrophe risk."
