Joe Stough

With a professional background in large-scale database software design and a graduate degree in Applied Statistics from the University of California, Joe Stough is the visionary and strategist behind the IMPACT ERM® Suite. Stough originally designed IMPACT to not only consolidate data from a broad array of different “risk reduction” processes but also to do so in a manner which practically enables the application of advanced statistical methods. With early adoption in the mid 1990’s in the Energy Industry for many Safety-related business practices, the use of the IMPACT solution now spans...

Xinshu Zhuang
