CHAPTER 27
CHIEF RISK AND
STRATEGY
OFFICERS

RISK QUOTE: Capitalism tries for a delicate balance: It attempts
to work things out so that everyone gets just enough stuff to keep
them from getting violent and trying to take other people’s stuff
.

—GEORGE CARLIN, COMEDIAN

RISK QUOTE: Without passion you don’t have energy. Without
energy you have nothing
.

—DONALD TRUMP, BUSINESSMAN

Is the individual a chief risk officer, a chief strategy officer, or both? Let us explore the issue.
