RATP Dev USA, the North American subsidiary of the global transportation provider, recently announced the appointment of Leldon Bulkley, MS-RMI, ARM, former vice president of enterprise risk management, safety, and benefits for Sun Holdings, as the vice president of risk management at RATP Dev USA.
“I am incredibly excited to have Leldon on the team and equally excited for the new ideas he will drive forward, as he leverages his experience,” Blaine Rigler, RATP Dev USA president and CEO, said. “As an expert in the areas of risk, insurance and safety, Leldon has a wealth of knowledge that will allow us to advance forward our aggressive approach to mitigating risk not only for our organization, but for our customers.”
Prior to joining RATP Dev USA, Bulkley led risk management, safety, and benefits programs for Sun Holdings, a company with over 1,000 restaurant/retail locations and workforce of 18,000 employees. His risk management experience spans both large public and private industries, with a sharp focus in risk financing and utilizing the value of analytics to yield improvements to the total cost of risk. Bulkley earned his MS in risk management and insurance from Florida State along with a BS in finance from Texas A&M Commerce. He is currently serving as the elected secretary of the Dallas Fort Worth Risk and Insurance Management Society (RIMS) and was elected to their board of directors in 2018. He holds an Associate in Risk Management (ARM) designation from the Insurance Institute of America and multi-state insurance licenses.
“Risk Management is a process where one continuously identifies, analyzes, evaluates, treats, monitors results, and reviews risk exposures. Risk Management and risk modeling only have true value if we can learn from what has occurred in the past, to better protect against the future,” Bulkley said. “This is done through internal partnerships where all parties move to achieve a reduction in our total cost of risk. I look forward to partnering with others across the organization to ensure excellence at RATP Dev USA and continuously improve our standards and risk exposure.”
