Risk managers may not have the most exciting of reputations, despite doing a vital job, but one adrenaline junkie is doing his best to prove that there’s more to GRC professionals than meets the eye.
William Fitzgerald, a risk management officer with mortgage broker Aussie, took up dragon boating in early 2010 in Canberra, after a 10-year senior rugby union career in Sydney and Canberra’s premier division.
In 2011, back form living in Sydney, Will was selected from his Sydney-based dragon boat club (Sloths) to represent NSW. In 2012, Will trialled for the Australian crew and was selected to represent Australia at the Asian Championships in Busan, South Korea on 4-9 September 2012. This will be his first international level competition.
