Christine Oh named new Director of Risk Management

Christine Oh has been selected as the new director of the Office of Risk Management Services (ORMS) in the Department of Executive Services (DES). She begins her new position on Dec. 24.

“Christine has the experience, professionalism and management skills to lead the Office of Risk Management Services into the future,” said Caroline Whalen, Director of DES. “She brings both continuity and a new perspective to the county’s nationally recognized program.”

Christine has been serving as Interim Director for ORMS since Jennifer Hills took a new position as Deputy Chief Operating Officer in September.

“I am looking forward on working with departments in the county on risk assessment, maximizing opportunities while implementing the risk appetite statement,” said Christine.

Christine joined King County in 2003 as a Senior Tort Investigator. In 2008 she became the Deputy Risk Manager, primarily overseeing the claims section and then also the financial section of the office.

She has a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Pittsburg State University. In her spare time she cheers on the Seahawks, loves to travel, and spend time with family.
