Spring Consulting Group has announced they have hired three new actuaries to support their Employee Benefits and Property & Casualty (P&C) Actuarial offerings.

As Spring’s Senior Vice President & Chief Actuary, Steven Keshner, is set to retire soon, the organization has appointed Ron Williams as Chief Actuary. In this role, Ron will lead Spring’s Employee Benefits Actuarial team, including providing strategic oversight and contributing to new business development.

Ron brings over 30 years of insurance experience across financial solutions, capital and risk management, and employee benefits. Prior to joining Spring, Ron was a Managing Director leading the Health and Benefits Risk Analytics Practice at KPMG and also held leadership roles at Willis Towers Watson, Lincoln Financial Group, and The Hartford.

Ron is also an adjunct professor of Corporate Finance within the Actuarial Science Program at the University of Connecticut, a Fellow of the Society of Actuaries, and a Member of the American Academy of Actuaries

Spring also hired MIT graduate, Andrew Stuntz as an Actuarial Analyst on the P&C team to support projects related to pricing, reserving, and captive feasibility studies. Prior to Spring, Stuntz worked on transit pricing and fare technology projects for the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) and on analysis of environmental regulations for NERA Economic Consulting. Stuntz will work on the P&C actuarial team led by Peter Johnson, Chief P&C Actuary.

Spring also recently welcomed Aaron Houtari as an Actuarial Analyst. Houtari holds two bachelor’s degrees in economics and applied Mathematics, and was Co-President of the Actuarial Club at Hillsdale College.

Houtari has held multiple finance and actuarial positions at AXA Advisors, JPMorgan, and Allen Bailey & Associates.

Commenting on these developments, Spring’s Managing Partner, Karin Landry, stated “I am thrilled about all the new additions to Spring. I know this will enhance the breadth of our actuarial services and ensure our clients continue receiving the same excellence, attention to detail, and consultative knowledge that our actuaries are known for!”

Landry also announced plans to continue expanding Spring’s actuarial resources this year in both the employee benefits and P&C space.
