Alan Phillips to chair Institute and Faculty's Management Board

Mr Phillips (pictured) succeeds Sally Bridgeland who recently stood down from the position.

The Management Board has oversight responsibilities for operational matters related to the Actuarial Profession's strategy, corporate plan, policy and operational plans, and all matters related to the Profession's resources.

Mr Phillips became a Fellow of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries in 1984. He has had a distinguished career at Bacon & Woodrow and then Hewitt Associates, where his roles included a number of senior management and leadership positions in the UK and across the European consulting business.

Commenting on the appointment, Jane Curtis, President of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries, said: "Firstly, I would like to thank Sally for her outstanding contribution to the Profession over the years. As the first chairman of the newly merged Institute and Faculty of Actuaries' Management Board, Sally has played a vital role in ensuring that we have strong foundations for the future and the Profession owes her a great deal.

"Of course, I also want to welcome Alan as our new Management Board chairman. Alan brings with him a wealth of senior leadership experience and operational expertise that will be of great benefit to the Profession as we continue to drive forward our strategy of positioning ourselves as the leading professional body in quantitative risk management."
