Most recently Vice-President of Risk Capital Management at GMAC Financial Services in Minneapolis, MN and PRMIAâs Minneapolis Regional Director, Mr. Lindo is a graduate of Oxford University, where he received his BA in 1974 and MA a decade later. His other previous employment at Cargill Financial Services Corporation, Bank One, and Lloyds Bank PLC, had taken him to Europe, South America and the United States. He speaks Spanish, Portuguese, French, German and basic Russian. He has been an active member of PRMIA since its inception in 2002.
Mr. Lindoâs goal is not only to strengthen and build on PRMIAâs already existing, rock-solid foundations, but also to branch out into new directions and seize new opportunities. âPRMIAâs staff, Board, regional directors and other volunteers have done an outstanding job in building the foundation for PRMIAâs sustained growth, including new products due to be launched in the coming months,â he notes. âIn addition to overseeing these initiatives, I will be looking for opportunities to add other new products and services to meet the changing needs of PRMIA members and partners.â
Mark Abbott, Secretary of PRMIAâs Executive Committee of the Board of Directors lauds Mr. Lindoâs commitment and goals. âMy personal interactions with Steve have been very rewarding,â Mr. Abbott says. âHe has been formulating plans to help connect with all our volunteer leaders, as well as practitioner members. He has also been thinking about ways to increase PRMIAâs ability to advance the risk profession, increase our relevance to risk through targeted activities meant to engage and communicate with more senior practitioners and thought leaders, as well as further develop the paths for career evolution for all members. We share similar long-term visions for the expansion of what PRMIA should and could do for the risk profession.â
Steve Lindo regards his position as âa great honor. On behalf of PRMIA, I intend to be a champion for the value added by professional risk managers worldwide to business decisions and financial results. I look forward to interacting with a wide community of fellow believers.â
