Farmers/Foremost Insurance Company
Manager Analytics R&D Group
I grew up in GR, went to Hope College majoring in math and physics, went into the U of Chicago physics PhD program but left early with a MS. I embarked on an actuarial career in Chicago, but ended up returning home toGR to work for Farmers. I started off as an entry level actuarial candidate, now after 17 years I manage the Analytics R&D group, focusing on automation, optimization, and AI in an insurance context.
