  • Established streamlined workflow and increased efficiency across departments in conducting vendor risk assessments

Emily Irving’s proven experience in managing complex project plans and developing supporting corporate initiatives will guide her as she oversees committees and projects to ensure consistency with the overall mission of the Shared Assessments Program.
