Resilience First has announced that it is to become more closely integrated with Resilience Rising, a ‘global consortium of NGOs and initiatives working together to build systemic resilience to some of the world’s most pressing challenges’. Resilience First is one of Resilience Rising’s ‘Essential Communities of Practice’.
Resilience First has also announced that Martyn Link is moving from his role as Executive Director at Resilience First to become a Senior Advisor to Resilience Rising.
Martyn will be focusing his efforts on continuing to scale up the Engineering Leadership Group (ELG), a joint initiative of Resilience First and the International Coalition for Sustainable Infrastructure, members of the Resilience Rising collective.
Seth Schultz, CEO of Resilience Rising, said: “Martyn took on the role of Executive Director of Resilience First at a crucial moment for the organization. He has been instrumental in bringing Resilience First to a new level and driving home the importance of systemic resilience to a broad network of influential businesses in the UK and globally. I appreciate his leadership and look forward to working with him closely in his new role with Resilience Rising and the Engineering Leadership Group.”
