Chicago, IL – April 29, 2014 – DW Simpson Global Actuarial and Analytics Recruitment promoted Aaron Benton to Managing Partner.
Benton will be responsible for overseeing the strategic and everyday recruitment operations of the firm, in tandem with Bob Morand, President of DW Simpson.
“Aaron’s demonstrated track record of leadership and success makes him an ideal managing partner in leading our organization,” said Patricia Jacobsen Simpson, Founder &CEO. “Aaron’s experience and strong relationships in our industry will be continually beneficial to us as we further realize our objective to be the foremost resource for Actuarial talent globally.”
Benton joined DW Simpson on a full time basis in June of 2000 after interning with the company for three summers during college. Upon starting Aaron focused on the entry-level actuarial market and was charged with creating a team dedicated exclusively to the placement of individuals who did not yet have a year of actuarial experience. In 2003 Aaron moved on to start working one-on-one with experienced actuaries across all disciplines, levels and locations. He has now earned six promotions in eight years. He has a Bachelor of Science Degree in Anthropology from Indiana University.
“Aaron’s work reflects the integrity and forthrightness that is at the core of our mission in each and every business relationship,” Patricia added.
