WALTHAM, Mass., June 16, 2016—The Cadmus Group, Inc. (Cadmus) announced today that it has hired a new principal, Jennie Rice, to lead a new practice providing strategic decision support for clients in the private and public sectors. This practice will provide decision and risk analysis services to help organizations make robust business strategy, portfolio management, and resource allocation decisions, while building support from internal and external stakeholders.
“Cadmus has long anticipated our clients’ evolving needs to offer technical expertise and advisory services of the highest caliber in an expanding number of markets and capabilities,” said President and CEO Ian Kline. “In bringing Jennie into our firm, we’re welcoming a tremendous talent in areas of critical importance to the future resilience and prosperity of our clients.”
“Challenges such as shifting market dynamics, evolving regulations, new technologies, and climate change require not only sophisticated analytics, but also smart decision processes to effectively address complexity, uncertainty, and risk,” said Rice. “With this new practice, we integrate analytics within the decision support process to help organizations ask the right questions, formulate and evaluate strategies, and take the necessary steps to mitigate risks, adapt to changing conditions, and thrive. I’m thrilled to be joining Cadmus to offer these services.”
Rice has more than two decades of experience helping clients in the energy, water, health, and climate science arenas make sound decisions in the face of socioeconomic, environmental, technological, and policy uncertainties and risks. Prior to joining Cadmus, she led the development and application of a multi-sector modeling framework for the U.S. Department of Energy/Pacific Northwest National Laboratory that projected the impacts of climate policy and climate change on the energy, agriculture, and water sectors in the United States.
Papers authored or co-authored by Rice have been published in the journals Climatic Change, Energy, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Mitigation and Adaptation Strategies for Global Change, and Journal of Advances in Modeling Earth Systems, among others. She is a member of the Society for Risk Analysis and the American Geophysical Union.
The strategic decision support practice will leverage Cadmus’ expertise in the energy, water, and health sectors and will supplement existing offerings in utility resource and system planning, climate security and resilience, greenhouse gas and sustainability reporting, and disaster management.
