Celebrating DW Simpson’s 34th Anniversary!

Read the latest industry updates and events.

When DW Simpson opened its doors in 1989, we made it our mission to be the premier executive recruiting firm specializing in the placement of actuaries and analytics professionals, to be recognized for the best service, integrity and forthrightness that the firm brings to each business relationship, and to be willing at all times to sacrifice short-term gain for the long-term good and prosperity of our clients, our candidates and, as a result, our organization as well. This mission statement has been the backbone of our philosophy and our success for 34 years and continues to be our goal.

“We have always taken pride at DW Simpson in being able to respond to candidates and clients quickly and accurately. Our many years of experience has given us a wealth of industry contacts and relationships that have assisted the entire actuarial community, from recruitment work to charity work. We have always remained steadfast in our honest, genuine approach of helping both clients and candidates to fill positions, and we make it a priority to build long-term and lasting relationships.” – Derek Mulder, Partner

“DW Simpson has never wavered from their mission of providing the best possible service to the actuarial community. Our commitment to approaching all client and candidate relationships with integrity and forthrightness is the cornerstone of our success and consistently differentiates us from our competitors.” – Patty Kennelly, Partner

At DW Simpson, we are committed to hiring and retaining diverse talent and ensuring that we treat everyone with respect and support. We strive to create conditions that provide everyone with an equal opportunity to thrive. DWS is also a proud sponsor of the following organizations: Sexuality and Gender Alliance of Actuaries, International Association of Black Actuaries, Network of Actuarial Women and Allies, Organization of Latino Actuaries and South Asian Network of Actuaries. We support a variety of scholarships for college students who are majoring in actuarial science through our own efforts and our alliances.

“What I am most proud of is that we are such a big part of the actuarial community; through our involvement with the societies and affinity groups, presenting at conferences and sitting on executive committees. Personally, I have developed many prominent relationships with actuaries at all levels and disciplines. This has made DW Simpson a place I could really build a lasting and meaningful career.” – Dave Benton, Partner and Chief Human Resources Officer

“We have always been committed to serving the entire actuarial community. As actuaries have blazed new trails, we have done our best to widen the paths for others to follow.” – KC Cho, Partner and 1st Vice President

Our success is always tied to our dedicated staff, many of whom have been with DW Simpson for decades, and to a supportive workplace for all our employees. We strive to provide an environment where people can thrive and feel supported in their careers, and we also want to take this opportunity to thank our staff for their contributions and dedication to the success of DW Simpson.

“DW Simpson has been dedicated to serving the actuarial community for 34 years, but what makes our firm unique is that there is an equal value placed on fostering a culture of respect and collaboration amongst employees. This culture enables us to work as a team to provide the best service to our clients and candidates. DW Simpson would not be the same without our people.” – Ellen Page, Chief Administrative Officer, Treasurer, Partner

Since we began serving the actuarial industry in 1989, we have focused on connecting candidates with career opportunities and advice, providing qualified candidates to our client companies, building lasting relationships with firms that employ actuaries, maintaining an active network of actuarial professionals and committing to advancing the actuarial community through sponsorships, alliances, and scholarships for actuarial students. We look forward to continuing and expanding our contributions in the future.

“We feel honored to serve and contribute to the actuarial community through volunteering and charitable contributing to the advancement of the profession.”– Patty Simpson, Chairman, CEO and Founder

“In our 34 years, DW Simpson has been intrinsically involved with the actuarial community, from our support to the societies and creating the first and longest-running industry salary survey, to being a resource to clients and candidates alike. Above all else, the greatest achievement in my eyes is when we are able to find the right role for a candidate that really makes an impact in their career and life.” – Marianne Westphal, Partner

As we reach this milestone, we want to express our gratitude to our clients, candidates, members of the actuarial community and our staff. It is a privilege to work with you every day!
