The US Airways pilot who brought a jet down safely into New York’s Hudson River earned a reputation for safety before he saved all 155 people aboard the damaged plane. When Chesley B. “Sully” Sullenberger is not flying commercial aircraft, he serves as president as a safety consulting firm. The former fighter pilot heads up Safety Reliability Methods, a firm building on aviation safety processes as a platform for consulting in other fields.
In addition to Sullenberger’s role as a pilot and business owner, he serves as visiting scholar at the University of California, Berkeley. He has participated in the University’s response to recent disasters at the Center for Catastrophic Risk Management (CCRM).
Sullenberger’s work to help businesses in crisis is the focus of a new SBTV.com podcast with Karlene Roberts, Director of the Center for Catastrophic Risk Management, on how they work with Sullenberger. Click here to hear the short interview.
The Center for Catastrophic Risk Management was founded after Hurricane Katrina’s devastation and is making a difference on many fronts. The CCRM staff helps organizations and businesses representing many different industries and challenges.
