Brian Stovsky has spoken of how people can practice risk management during the COVID-19 pandemic. He understands why risk management has a significance that is nuanced during this pandemic. Risk management is used to identify exposures within an organization and implement the proper processes and solutions to mitigate the potential loss moving forward. If there are exposures, the next thing that they must do is seek out other procedures that would mitigate or remove the exposure properly. Due diligence is a critical component of risk advisory, and many problems and issues can be identified during due diligence. Then, the steps are implemented, before the final task of reviewing and monitoring everything. Brian Stovsky acknowledges that the pandemic has made for a tumultuous landscape when it comes to deal due diligence and closing. However, with a proper risk advisory and due diligence partner, as well as potential reps and warranties coverages, risk navigation can still be completed successfully in today’s environment.
Brian Stovsky currently lives in downtown Cleveland and has a girlfriend and a dog.
