Chief executive at BSI Howard Kerr said, along with supply chain resilience and information resilience, operational resilience is one of BSI’s core strategic domains.
BSI Americas president, Todd VanderVen added that Atrium is an exciting addition to BSI's portfolio. “Their extensive EHS knowledge and experience of delivering the highest quality service complements our existing advisory and assurance businesses,” he said. “ This delivers on our strategic objective of becoming the leading provider of EHS advisory services in the US and in the long-term, internationally.
