RMA Adds Josh Mayer, Plans Expansion of Banking Certificate and Certification Offerings

Philadelphia, PA (February 7, 2019) –

The Risk Management Association is enhancing its industry-leading capabilities to serve financial institutions and promote sound risk management principles with the addition of Josh Mayer, Associate Director of Professional Development.

In this role, Mayer will help banks build their targeted credit risk training curricula and their overall risk management instruction program for employees. He will also oversee RMA’s widely recognized Credit Risk Certification (CRC), and play a key role as RMA expands its already robust offerings in the certificate and certification space, which include the Credit Analysis Certificate, the Credit Essentials Certificate for colleges and universities, and the Operational Risk Management Fundamentals Certificate in addition to the CRC. RMA certification allows practitioners to become credentialed risk professionals, helping them command the trust and respect of colleagues and customers alike.  

“Josh will benefit RMA member institutions by drawing on an expertise informed by his background in commercial banking, training, consulting, and teaching,” said Lisa McBride, Director, Professional Development at RMA. “Most recently, he spent over 12 years in Bank of America’s Middle Market and Learning organizations.”

The recent addition of Mayer is part of numerous key personnel moves and investments in support of RMA’s Vision 2020 effort to remain the authority on risk management in financial services through the strategic deployment of innovation, technology, and creativity.
