I graduated from Rose-Hulman in 1974 and since have become a Member of the American
Academy of Actuaries and an Associate in the Society of Actuaries. I joined the
Indianapolis office of Milliman in 1984 with primary interests in individual life insurance,
financial reporting, and valuation of disability income products.
Here is a short description of the company. Milliman is among the world’s
largest independent actuarial and consulting firms, with revenues of $472 million in
2006. Founded in Seattle in 1947, we currently have 47 offices in key locations worldwide.
Our staff of 2,000 people includes more than 900 qualified consultants and actuaries.
We are owned and managed by approximately 300 principals—senior consultants whose
selection is based on their technical, professional and business achievements.
Through consulting practices in employee
benefits, healthcare, investment, life
insurance and financial services, and property
and casualty insurance, Milliman serves the full spectrum of business, financial,
government, union, education, and nonprofit organizations. In addition to our consulting
actuaries, Milliman’s body of professionals includes numerous other specialists,
ranging from clinicians to economists.
Despite our impressive growth over the past six decades, we still operate according
to the guiding principles of our founders, Wendell Milliman and Stuart Robertson. We
retain their rigorous standards of professional excellence, peer review and objectivity.
We remain committed to developing innovative tools and products and providing expert
solutions. And we continue to earn our clients’ trust by keeping our focus fixed
on their business objectives.
