Dr Andy Garlick MA PhD FIRM

With a background in mathematics, Andy has worked in risk for over 30 years. Starting from the complex reliability and physics modelling needed in nuclear reactor risk assessment, Andy has made risk more accessible and business-relevant through his innovative approach and his leadership of several risk-based consulting practices. He is the author of Estimating Risk: A Management Approach, the comprehensive guide to quantitative risk analysis, and has advised several organisations bidding for PFI/PPP deals on this, as well as mitigation strategies and risk management and pricing.
