The American Academy of Actuaries has honored Henry Siegel with the 2008 Jarvis Farley Service Award. Siegel, who first began volunteering for the Academy in 1984, was selected in recognition of his service to the Academy and to the actuarial profession.
Siegel is a member of the Academy's Risk Management and Financial Reporting Council, and is the chairperson of both its Financial Reporting Committee and its International Financial Reporting Standards Task Force.
Siegel has also held leadership positions with the Society of Actuaries, the Actuarial Standards Board, and the Actuarial Society of Greater New York, which he served as president in 2006.
Siegel has 40 years of actuarial experience. Currently he is the vice president of New York Life's Office of the Chief Actuary, a position he has held since 2002.
The service award was established in 1991 in honor of Jarvis Farley, one of the Academy's charter members. The Academy presents the award to an individual who continues Farley's spirit of volunteer service to the actuarial profession.
Based in Washington, DC, the American Academy of Actuaries is a 16,000-member professional association whose mission is to serve the public on behalf of the U.S. actuarial profession.
