Michael Mainelli of Z/Yen Limited gets elected

Z/Yen Limited, the fast-growing risk/reward management practice, is delighted to announce that a Z/Yen Director, Michael Mainelli, has been elected to the Executive Committee of the Strategic Planning Society.  Michael, who joined the City-based risk/reward management practice a year ago, concentrates most of his Z/Yen energies on large organisations which are applying risk/reward management techniques to strategy and planning.  His current work involves strategic corporate development for the £1 billion Defence Evaluation Research Agency.

Michael has been an active member of the Strategic Planning Society for nearly a decade and has been involved in addressing seminars and facilitating workshops for the society.

Michael comments "I am honoured that the membership of this prestigious society has voted me in to represent them on their Executive.  I hope that my contribution can in some way help the Strategic Planning Society to go from strength to strength in the coming years".

Z/Yen Director Ian Harris was no less circumspect.  "We are thrilled that Michael has been chosen to represent the Strategic Planning Society members.  His energy and creative ideas should benefit the Society enormously.  Michael's election reinforces our assertion that the principles of risk/reward management are increasingly becoming central to strategic planning."

Z/Yen specialises in risk/reward management, an innovative approach to improving organisational performance.  Z/Yen clients to date include blue chip companies in banking, insurance, utilities and distribution, as well as several charities and medical organisations.
