Executive Brief

The Executive Team

Alan Josefsek - President & Founder

INFORM was created by Alan Josefsek in 1979 while at Fred. S. James, Inc (now Marsh McLennan). Alan saw a problem and applied his engineering talents to create INFORM. Alan was a Loss Prevention specialist working on national accounts that wanted to lower their cost of risk. He has extensive field experience in Safety and in doing facility surveys. He has assisted national accounts in writing their corporate safety programs. He has surveyed/consulted on safety at hundreds of sites across America of many varied types of businesses. Alan realized that he needed more information in order to accomplish this objective. So, he submitted a business plan to James's management which approved his plan. He then set out to secure the computers needed and then went on to learn the programming skills needed to design and implement an RMIS system, which became INFORM. Alan earned his BS degree in Engineering Science from Hofstra University and later earned his MBA in Management Science from Pace University in NYC. He holds a Professional Engineering license in the state of California in Safety.
