Jules Constantinou, IFoA president, said: "It is with great pleasure that we welcome Tan Suee Chieh to the presidential team. From the very start of his career he has been an active supporter of the actuarial profession across the globe. His expertise will be invaluable as we continue to encourage our members and all actuaries to step out of the shadows and show how our work has influence and impact across a variety of industries."
Tan Suee Chieh said:"I am very proud of my career as an actuary and the work I have done in the insurance industry. It has been hugely rewarding. I am very pleased that my peers elected me to this role. It gives me the opportunity to support the profession across geographical boundaries and its continuing efforts in reinvention to meet the needs of business and society in a sustainable manner. As we move into the future, we will continue to adapt and transform, to ensure we succeed and thrive in a digital age."
