Federal Emergency Management Agency
Nick Shufro serves as the FEMA assistant administrator for the Risk Management Directorate within the Federal Insurance and Mitigation Administration. Through Shufro’s leadership, the directorate manages a suite of programs that analyze and assess hazards, manage risks, and engage with partners to communicate risk. The directorate’s program portfolio includes the Risk Mapping, Assessment, and Planning Program, the National Earthquake Hazard Reduction Program, the National Dam Safety Program, and National Mitigation Planning. The integrated delivery of these programs enables FIMA to realize its value to society by creating safer communities through reducing loss of life and property, enabling individuals to recover more rapidly from floods and other disasters, and lessening the financial impact on the treasury, states, tribes and communities.
Shufro was appointed to the Federal Senior Executive Service in 2016. He holds a Masters of Environmental Management from Yale University, and a Masters of Business Administration, Finance, and International Business from New York University’s Stern School of Business with a study abroad at L’Ecole des Hautes Etudes Commerciales, and a Bachelor of Arts in History from The University of Michigan.
Shufro has more than 30 years of energy, financial, adaptation, resilience, environmental health and safety management, and performance reporting experience, working and consulting for industry, government, utilities, trade associations, and non-governmental agencies in the U.S., Latin America, Europe, and Asia.
