Kiln’s chief actuary honoured with GIRO award

The annual award, which is given to an individual who has excelled in the actuarial profession and made significant contributions to learning within their field, was presented to Mr Hitchcox (pictured) following a secret ballot at the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries' 38th General Insurance Research Organisation (GIRO) conference in Liverpool, in front of more than 500 actuaries from around the world.

Mr Hitchcox thanked the committee, and said: "Winning an award like this is a double-edged sword - I hope this is a sign that I am at the top of the hill and not yet over it!"

Colum D'Auria, chair of the GIRO Committee, who presented the award to Hitchcox, said: "I was delighted to be able to recognise Andrew's achievements in this way. His contribution to general insurance research has been exemplary. Personally, I have much admired his commitment to knowledge sharing and debate within the profession."

Mr Hitchcox has been Kiln's chief actuary and risk officer for six years. He has authored numerous papers on general insurance; he is a member of the ERM Board of the Institute, a chair of the ERM Research Committee, a member of Programme Committee, which oversees the production and refereeing of research papers for the British Actuarial Journal, and previously held a number of senior positions with the General Insurance board of the Institute of Actuaries.
