In today’s unpredictable business environment it is critical to effectively manage not only the risks that can threaten value, but also the risks that an enterprise must take to create value. It takes a genuine understanding of both the industry and the organization to navigate a successful path ahead. When it comes to helping companies manage risk with confidence, Henry Ristuccia is a pro.
He is a partner with Deloitte & Touche LLP and Global as well as U.S. co-leader of Deloitte's Governance, Risk and Compliance practice. He focuses on helping organizations on their journey to become a Risk Intelligent Enterprise,™ where risk considerations are incorporated into strategic decisions.
During his more than twenty-year career with Deloitte, Henry has provided services to organizations throughout the United States in support of their efforts to assess and implement internal control and risk management systems related to operations, information technology, and financial management. Focusing predominantly on financial institutions, he has served clients varying in size and industry.
“Throughout my tenure within the Deloitte Governance, Risk and Compliance practice, I have seen the marketplace realize that traditional risk management practices have shortcomings. As a result, senior stakeholders, including legislators, regulators, investors, independent directors, and executive management, are all reexamining their current thinking related to risk management.”
Henry received a Bachelor of Science degree from St. John’s University. He is a certified public accountant licensed in New York. In addition, he is certified as an information systems auditor, management consultant, and a risk and information systems controller.
Outside of the office, Henry and his entire family are very involved with a regional animal welfare organization where Henry volunteers as board member and treasurer.
“We are very grateful to take part in this worthwhile cause, whose mission is to help homeless animals. Our motto is, “The animals are part of our family until they become part of yours.”
