Andrew Vaughan, a partner at Barnett Waddingham, has been elected as chair of the International Association of Consulting Actuaries.
The IACA was founded over 50 years ago to bring together actuarial consultants from around the world. It is the consulting section of the International Actuarial Association and aims to develop the consulting actuary role and enhance the reputation of the actuarial profession and individual consulting actuaries worldwide.
Mr Vaughan said: 'IACA is a key body in promoting the role of consulting actuaries on a global basis alongside sharing research and best practice through its regular conferences and other meetings and I am honoured to be elected as chair at a time when the consulting actuarial world is facing many new challenges.'
He takes up the post having also recently been elected as chair of the UK's Association of Consulting Actuaries where he succeeded outgoing chair Stuart Southall at the start of this month.
Nick Salter, senior partner at Barnett Waddingham, said: 'Barnett Waddingham is proud that Andrew has been elected chair of both IACA and the ACA. It is testament to his excellent industry reputation that Andrew has been elected to take up chair positions at both of these prestigious associations.'
Membership of the IACA is open to all actuaries who are members of the IAA, which includes all fellows of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries.
