Pamela Brumit, Actuarial Recruiter, begins her employment with the firm on July 18, 2011. Ms. Brumit brings with her leadership skills as well as a strong background in business marketing and management. She has an excellent capacity for research and for managing client and candidate myriad demands. Ms. Brumit will help the organization extend their lead in actuarial recruitment.
Additionally, Sally Ezra, Partner, Ezra Penland Actuarial Recruitment, was interviewed in the most recent issue of Contingencies, the magazine of the American Academy of Actuaries. The topic was the “Evolving Actuarial Marketplace”
“Recruiter [Sally] Ezra observes that more companies are coming to her to locate actuaries who have experience with predictive analytics and ERM. “Those are two areas where I see the most growth, ” she says.
Organizations always want to be ahead of the game, and actuaries are generally in a good position to help, Ezra says. Successful actuaries are the problem solvers. “They are not just reporting what is going on; they are looking to solve the problems,” Ezra says. As a result, she adds, more actuaries are taking on chief executive officer and chief financial officer roles.
Preparing to be tomorrow’s successful actuary will mean much more than having great mathematical and technical skills. Solid business skills will be required as well, experts agree. “The people coming out of the universities are looking to be business people who happen to be actuaries,” Ezra says.”
The complete transcript of Sally Ezra’s quotes are available at EzraPenland.com, as will soon be a biography of Ms. Brumit.
