Articles - Colin Wilson is new President-elect of IFoA


 The Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA) announced today (Monday) that Colin Wilson, Deputy Government Actuary, has been elected as the next President-elect of the IFoA. Colin will take up his position as President-elect in June 2015, when Fiona Morrison becomes the new President, taking over from Nick Salter. Colin will take on the role of President in June 2016.
  
 Commenting on the appointment, Nick Salter, current President, said:
 "I am delighted to announce that Colin Wilson has been elected by his fellow Council members to serve as President. Colin has been an active volunteer since qualifying 19 years ago, and brings to the Presidential team an unparalleled diversity of experience across different practice areas."
  
 Derek Cribb, CEO of the IFoA said:
 “I look forward to working with Colin to promote his theme of collaboration, as the IFoA continues to rise to the challenges and opportunities facing the actuarial profession both in the UK and internationally."
  
 Colin Wilson said: "I am truly honoured that my fellow Council members have elected me to the Presidential team. I am optimistic about the future of the actuarial profession, and am committed to building on the foundations laid by my predecessors and to push to expand the range of actuarial work beyond its traditional boundaries.
  
 "I believe that a profession such as ours must ensure that it has a voice that others want to hear and must continue to develop its expertise to avoid being left behind in a changing world. We will achieve this by embracing the value of collaboration – within the profession between different practice areas, with other actuarial bodies for the benefit of the global profession, and with other professions to address problems that require a variety of skills."
  
 Fiona Morrison, current President-elect said:
 "Colin brings a wealth of knowledge and experience that will be invaluable, not only to the Presidential team, but to the wider actuarial profession. I look forward to working with Colin to promote actuaries as we lead the IFoA into the next stage of the profession's development.”
