Congratulations to Jennifer Hills, director of King County’s Office of Risk Management Services! She’s been named Public Risk Manager of the Year by PRIMA, a risk management association for public agencies. Jennifer received the award during PRIMA’s annual conference in Indianapolis.

Jennifer has been a King County employee for nearly 20 years and has spearheaded several initiatives, including implementation of Enterprise Risk Management. ERM is moving King County from being a risk-averse organization to one that takes smart risks that enhance value. The award also honors Jennifer’s staff at ORMS who have made her vision a reality. This work is another way that King County is leading the nation in becoming a best run government.
