AAE appoints Wilhelm Schneemeier as chairperson

The Actuarial Association of Europe (AAE) has appointed Wilhelm Schneemeier as chairperson for the year until October 2021.

Schneemeier is a German national and has served on the AAE Board of Directors since 2017 and has been a member of both its insurance and professionalism committees.

He was president of Deutsche Aktuarvereinigung (Germany) from 2015-2017 and is still a member of DAV’s Executive Board and chairs their International Committee. He is also a member of the IAA Strategic Planning Committee as well as member of IAA’s Life Section Committee.

Commenting on his appointment, Schneemeier said: "I feel privileged to represent this great organisation of volunteers as chairperson. We face big challenges: COVID-19, the low interest environment, our climate, changing regulations – just to name a few – are all impacting insurers, pension funds, consumers and therefore also the work of actuaries.

“Being the representation of the European actuaries it is our aim to contribute
to complex issues. This will also be an important objective for the next year.
I look forward to collaborate with our member associations, the European
Commission, members of the European Parliament, supervisors and other
stakeholders to address the major challenges ahead.”

During the AAE's general assembly Mária Kamenárová (Slovakia) was elected as vice-chairperson for the coming year. Philippe Demol (Belgium) and Inga Helmane (Latvia) were elected as board members replacing José Mendinhos (Portugal) and Kartina Thomson (UK) whose terms ended.
