Actuaries Institute president Jenny Lyon confirmed the resignation of David Bell yesterday afternoon. He will leave at the end of the 2017 calendar year.
In a statement, Ms Lyon credited Mr Bell for building the public profile of the institute and boosting its advocacy efforts.
“David has helped ensure that the institute has a voice as a public policy advocate on key reform issues affecting Australian society and our economy such as those in the banking, insurance, health, big data, tax and superannuation/retirement incomes sectors,” she said.
Accountants Daily understands there is no replacement for Mr Bell in the pipeline, and that an executive search has commenced for the next CEO.
The Actuaries Institute centres itself on boosting the profile and presence of Australian actuaries in business, through education and advocacy initiatives.
