Louis Drapeau Wins DRI International Honor Roll Award

March 12, 2024 Leave a comment DRI Admin

DRI Board of Directors member Louis Drapeau was recognized at the DRI2024 Awards of Excellence Gala in New Orleans, LA, Mar. 5, 2024, as he was named this year’s recipient of the prestigious Honor Roll Award.

The DRI International Honor Roll Award was created to honor individuals who have demonstrated exceptional service to DRI International and materially contributed to the growth and reputation of DRI, made a significant and lasting impact on the field of business continuity, disaster recovery or a closely related risk-management field through their professional accomplishments, earned the respect and admiration of their professional colleagues, and served the profession over an extended period of time.

Drapeau has been on the DRI Board of Directors for close to 20 years. His professional past includes being Risk Manager for the City of Dearborn, MI, the Director of Risk Management of the Budd Company (now part of ThyssenKrupp), and Director of Risk Management for the University of Kentucky. Perhaps Drapeau’s most significant achievement is that he is a past president of the Risk Management Society (RIMS), the most prestigious position in the risk management arena.

Drapeau has been on the DRI board of directors for many years. He has served as Chairman of the Board for several terms as well as Vice Chairman. Drapeau has chaired several board committees, and has served as DRI’s Risk Manager, ensuring that DRI and its Board of Directors is adequately insured.

“He is the only member of the DRI Board who is not a DRI Certified Business Continuity Professional,” said fellow Board member Michael Morganti, who nominated Drapeau. “However, his ARM certification from the Insurance Institute of America gives the DRI Board a valuable perspective on how business continuity links with risk management, specifically with respect to enterprise risk management. Drapeau has earned the respect and admiration of his fellow board members through his leadership skills and his insight.”
