“It Takes One To Know One… An Actuary Placing Actuaries (and Related Professionals)”

Practicing actuaries have invested a lot of time, energy, and intellectual capital to get to where they are today. So has Pauline Reimer. An actuary herself, Pauline has a unique appreciation for the skills that actuaries (and related practitioners) bring to the table and the investment that they have made in their fields of expertise. And with 25+ years of recruitment experience, Pauline is perfectly positioned to help you actualize your career potential and objectives and/or identify for hire superior candidates whose career aspirations match the focus and goals of your organization.

Pauline Reimer has directed Pryor Associates’ Actuarial, Modeling, & Risk Division since 1986, and has a proven track record of placing these professionals in choice domestic and international positions in property & casualty, life, and health insurance; pension and other employee benefits; systems, accounting, investment banking and other finance-related industries.

She herself has worked as an actuary at premier consulting and insurance companies, and has earned the following notable professional credentials and memberships:

  • Society of Actuaries (Associate);
  • Casualty Actuarial Society (Affiliate);
  • Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (Affiliate);
  • American Academy of Actuaries;
  • International Society of Catastrophe Managers;
  • CAS Centennial Partner;
  • SOA Entrepreneurial Actuaries Section Council;
  • SOA Advisory Panel;
  • Executive Board of the Actuarial Society of Greater New York (ASNY) as Vice President of Public Relations;
  • Advisory Board of Columbia University’s MS in Actuarial Science program;
  • Advisory Board of New York University’s BS in Actuarial Science program.

As Chair of the annual ASNY Career Fair, the largest such gathering of future actuaries and hiring sponsors nationwide, and active speaker at local universities, she has often been solely responsible for initiating the careers of many future actuaries, who are now in C-level positions themselves, thanks to Pauline’s efforts.

Often quoted in financial and professional periodicals such as the Wall Street Journal, Pauline has also appeared on television business channels to share her subject matter expertise. Ms. Reimer remains on the forefront of the industry by attending 15 – 20 actuarial and modeling conferences annually and, as such, is particularly attentive to dynamic changes in the marketplace that have created openings for individuals interested in working on the cutting edge of their profession, including in insurance, reinsurance, consulting, brokerage, financial management, risk management, investment banking, and hedge funds.

The agency’s growth stems from successfully identifying and attracting professional talent and matching candidates to each client’s unique needs; as a result, Pryor Associates has been named one of the top-25 regional recruiting firms according to Dun & Bradstreet. Pryor’s state-of-the-art technology has enabled it to assemble and maintain an internal database of actuaries and modelers ranging from recent graduates through chief executives, complete with up-to-date information on educational and professional credentials as well as geographic preferences. Under the direction of Ms. Reimer, the Actuarial, Modeling, & Risk Division is marked by scrupulous attention to detail, confidentiality, discretion, and professionalism. Guided by the principles of “prompt follow up” and “prompt follow through,” Pauline brings her knowledge of the latter professions and of the executive search process into play in every assignment. No client is ever relegated to just an Assistant.

Pauline Reimer’s credentials, integrity, firsthand experience, long standing business relationships, dedication and over-the-top service — enhanced by leading-edge technology and a professional, experienced support staff — have resulted in an impressive 99% personal placement retention rate as well as success ratio in retained searches. These qualifications have earned Pauline her reputation as one of the most successful, respected, and preeminent recruiters of actuaries and related practitioners worldwide.
