My latest Actuarial Review article profiles property-casualty actuaries forging non-traditional career paths.

Actuaries forging non-traditional career paths.

To write the article, I went through a list of members of the Casualty Actuarial Society who are not working for insurance companies or serving as consultants. This list features about 3 percent of the CAS’s membership.

In the article, I cover four actuaries who have one thing in common: they were all inspired by their families to seek unchartered career territory. The article features:

  • Sharon Carroll who applies her actuarial experience to improve management of hospital expenses to achieve work/family balance.
  • Bill Wilt who started a new company that publishes unique insurance-related research.
  • Robert Anderson who, with his wife’s encouragement, became an in-house actuary to develop fresh approaches to insuring a major corporation.
  • Mike McMurray who runs a minor league baseball team due to him and his wife’s shared passion for the game.

The article also includes advice to property-casualty actuaries who also want apply their actuarial skills in non-traditional work settings.

This is part 1 of a two-part series in Actuarial Review that covers actuaries forging non-traditional career paths. The November/December issue of Actuarial Review will also feature more property-casualty actuaries who are taking the career path less traveled.

I hope you will check it out.
