Prior to joining The Standard in 2005, Briggs spent nearly seven years at Towers Perrin and Mercer in benefits plan consulting. She has held actuarial positions in The Standard’s Retirement Plans business in both the defined benefits area and the product and risk management areas, as well as on the Corporate Actuarial team. She currently oversees the enterprise risk-management program and led the implementation of significant new risk-management strategies at the company.
In her new role, Briggs will expand her provision of governance and oversight over financial reporting and product and pricing decisions across all business lines. She will also maintain relationships with key external stakeholders including auditors, regulators and rating agencies, to ensure they have information to understand actuarial practices and outcomes at the company, and will continue to play a significant role in producing embedded value reporting.
“Julie is a proven actuarial leader, having previously driven the establishment of our enterprise risk-management practice as well as leading a number of critical cross-divisional initiatives,” said Sally Manafi, vice president and corporate actuary at The Standard. “Her leadership in her expanded role will be crucial as we continue to expand our risk-management activities and support other business strategies.”
Briggs earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in mathematics and classical studies at Willamette University. She is a Fellow of the Society of Actuaries and a member of American Academy of Actuaries.
