Senior Vice President, L&H Liability Portfolio Manager, Swiss Re America Holding Corporation

Brian Carteaux earned his B.S. as a dual major in both Actuarial Science and Statistics in 2000 from Purdue University. He became a member of the American Academy of Actuaries in 2003, and is currently the Senior Vice President, L&H Liability Portfolio Manager at Swiss Re American Holding Corporation in Fort Wayne, Indiana. The Swiss Re Group is a leading wholesale provider of reinsurance, insurance, and other insurance-based forms of risk transfer. 

Like most actuaries, Brian loved math. While trying to decide what to do with math interests, he knew that he liked using math to solve problems, especially in a business setting, so Actuarial Science was the natural choice. 

Mr. Carteaux's favorite memory during his time at Purdue University was his marriage proposal to his now wife. The setting was Ross-Ade Stadium. It was the Purdue vs Indiana University (IU) football game, and Brian's entire family — plus thousands of fans — watched as he proposed on the jumbo screen. Luckily, Christina said yes!
