We are excited to announce that Lianne Kennedy-Boudali has joined the Control Risks team! Lianne joins the Crisis and Security Consulting department in North America, bringing extensive expertise in security advisory services, program design and the application of technology to risk management. She most recently worked as the chief strategy officer at a risk consultancy supporting private clients and corporations, leading engagements for advisory services, threat intelligence, risk management and strategic planning. 

We took a couple of minutes to catch up with Lianne, learning what she likes most about her job and how she likes to spend her free time (when she gets it!). 

What does your job entail?

I work with clients to identify and assess the risks they face, then help them determine the best programs and tools to mitigate risk to an acceptable level. This consulting process gives us a deep understanding of client needs and preferences. Every client is unique, and we enable them to be successful. 

What do you like most about your job?

I enjoy the way Control Risks operates as one firm, leveraging the full range of our capabilities to support clients and building lasting relationships to enable their success.

What drew you to Control Risks?

The opportunity to join a group that is solving hard problems for clients today while seeking to define the framework for risk management tomorrow.

What’s the coolest thing you’re working on?

The intersection of technology and risk management, which is the future of our industry. 

What is the best career lesson you’ve learned so far?

We are all happiest and most successful when we bring our authentic selves to work. 

What would you do for a career if you weren’t doing this?

At one point in my life, I considered becoming a park ranger.

What is your motto or personal mantra?

I don’t have one. 

What are three words that best describe you?

Creative, honest, and adventurous. 

What are three things left on your bucket list?

My list is constantly changing, but for now, I would say going to Patagonia, seeing the Northern Lights, and skiing in the Alps. 

When you have 30 minutes of free-time, how do you pass the time?

What is this “free time” you speak of?  With my family, outdoors, or, very rarely, reading something not related to work.
