Risk Waters Group releases a list of missing
staff & companies thought to have had delegates at our conference
in the World Trade Center.
5.30 pm. Tuesday 16th October 2001, London.
Following the attacks of September 11th Risk Waters Group has until
now not released the names of anyone we believe was attending Waters
Financial Technology Congress in 'Windows on the World' on that
day. Several of the families had specifically requested that this
information was not made public & we wanted to protect them from
any unnecessary intrusion during this difficult time.
Now, just over one month after the tragedy, we think it is appropriate
to publicly release the names of our colleagues who are missing
along with the names of companies that we believe had sent delegates
The 16 Risk Waters staff are:
- Michele Beale (née du Berry), Director of
- Oli Bennett, Staff Writer, Risk magazine
- Paul Bristow, Conferences Producer
- Neil Cudmore, Sales Director, Waters magazine
- Sarah Ali Escarcega , Freelance Marketing
- Elisa Ferraina, Senior Conferences Sponsorship
- Amy Lamonsoff, Events Manager, North America
- Sarah Redheffer (née Prothero), Conferences
- David Rivers, Editorial Director, Waters
- Laura Rockefeller, Freelance Delegate Co-ordinator
- Karlie Rogers, Divisional Sponsorship Manager
- Simon Turner, Publishing Director
- Celeste Victoria, Conferences Telesales Executive
- Joanna Vidal, Event Co-ordinator
- Melanie de Vere, Publisher, Waters Reference
- Dinah Webster, Advertising Manager
While there can be no certainty, the company's
best estimates are that 71 industry delegates also attended. After
speaking to representatives we believe that the following companies
had delegates at the event.
- Algorithmics Inc.
- ARC Partners Inc.
- BEA Systems
- Boston Investor Services Inc.
- Callixa Inc.
- Cambridge Technology Partners
- Caplin Systems Inc.
- Compaq Computer Corporation
- Credit Suisse First Boston
- Financial Fusion/SYBASE Inc.
- Freddie Mac
- Gold Tier Technologies
- Imagine Software Inc.
- Janus Capital Corp
- Jennison Associates
- JPMorgan Investor Services
- Merrill Lynch
- Morgan Stanley Dean Witter
- Nomura Research Institute
- Random Walk Computing Inc.
- Salomon Smith Barney
- Slam Dunk Networks
- SSM Consulting
- Thales Contact Solutions
- Thomson Financial
- UBS Warburg
- Umevoice Inc.
- Zurich Scudder Investments
All of these
organisations are aware of the names of the delegates we expected
to have been at the conference. As they are the primary point of
contact for the delegate's families we do not feel it is appropriate
for Risk Waters Group to release the names of the individual delegates.
