Contact Details


After 19 years in the actuarial profession, Philip finds himself on a much-needed and volitional career break. Philip has had numerous and diverse roles in the insurance industry. Mostly recently, he was senior vice president at a Fortune 1000 insurance and financial services distributor, guiding analytics, machine learning, and modernization initiatives. For many years before that, he was at a large international reinsurer, where he was on the biometrics research team researching emerging underwriting tools and their applications to underwriting and pricing, mortality table construction, underwriting models using predictive analytics, and pandemic risk. He stepped away from the reinsurer for several years to take a role as chief actuary of a small life and health carrier. For the Society, he has contributed to the development of the 2015 VBT and Pub2010 mortality tables, and he is currently a vice-chair for the Individual Life Experience Committee. He holds Masters degrees in mathematics and in statistics from Tulane University in New Orleans. He is a Fellow of the Society of Actuaries (FSA), Member of the American Academy of Actuaries (MAAA), and Chartered Enterprise Risk Analyst (CERA).
