DENTON, Texas (UNT) – Kyle Weddle, adjunct professor of risk management in the College of Business at the University of North Texas, will be recognized as one of DFW’s top risk managers this year by D CEO Magazine and the Risk Management Society (RIMS).

Weddle will be featured in D CEO Magazine and will be honored at the annual RIMS and D CEO Risk Management Awards in Dallas today (Sept. 17). 

“This recognition supports UNT’s continuing commitment to tomorrow’s risk management and insurance professionals,” Weddle said.

With more than 10,000 risk management professionals in more than 120 countries, RIMS is a global leader in risk management that is dedicated to advancing risk management practices. RIMS provides a way for risk managers to share ideas and best practices.    

“This sharing creates greater opportunities for improving ourselves and the risk management practices we implement within our own companies,” Weddle said.   

In addition to working with students at UNT, Weddle is a senior manager of enterprise risk for Lennox International Inc. He also has worked around the globe for General Motors, where he pioneered the company’s first global supply chain risk model. Weddle credits his achievements to his peers and leaders.       

“I have benefited from the teachings of several mentors during my career,” Weddle said. “These leaders and colleagues are equally deserving of this award, and I hope to continue carrying on their tradition of sharing and giving back.”      

Weddle uses his work as an adjunct professor at UNT as a way to give back to the risk management community.       

“Teaching as an adjunct professor at UNT allows me to share real case studies that create opportunities for students to explore, discuss and practice critical thinking around risk analysis, risk quantification and risk management decision making,” Weddle said.
