Rich retired at the end of 2021 after a long career as an in-house lawyer with both for-profit and not-for-profit organizations. Before retiring, he had been General Counsel for the Society of Actuaries for 12 years. Hired as SOA’s first in-house lawyer in 2009, Rich established and managed the legal department and later took responsibility for overseeing SOA’s corporate governance, governmental/regulatory affairs, and risk management functions as well.  Originally from Omaha, Nebraska, Rich has a bachelor’s degree from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln and earned his law degree from the College of Law at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.

“Generation to generation, education has always been and will continue to be the great equalizer and the difference-maker in the future for our youth.  I love the fact that The Actuarial Foundation is investing in and supporting the educational journey of young people across the spectrum… from foundational mathematics in middle school to financial literacy and math excellence in high school, and to advanced actuarial study for college students.  As a trustee, I hope to contribute to TAF’s important mission.”
