EUROPE - European Actuarial Consulting Services (EURACS) has appointed Danny Wilding, of UK member firm Barnett Waddingham, to replace chairman Dominique Piermay of Fixage in France.
Wilding is appointed for a term of two years and will work closely with the director general, Max Bogaard, and a vice chairman to be appointed.
In order to support business interests outside Europe, Fixage has formed new international alliances which has meant it has had to step down from EURACS - because Fixage no longer satisfies EURACS’ strict criteria for the independence of member firms. As a result Mme Piermay has to resign her position.
Originally formed in 1982, EURACS is now constituted as an association of independent actuarial firms throughout Europe.
