Actuaries Institute president Jenny Lyon confirmed chief executive David Bell's resignation in a statement released yesterday afternoon.
"David has been an important part of the institute and played an instrumental role in building our public profile," Ms Lyon said.
Mr Bell joined the Actuaries Institute in January 2014 and will leave the association at the end of calendar 2017.
"With his energy and insights, David has helped ensure that the institute has a voice as a public policy advocate on key reform issues affecting Australian society and our economy, such as those in the banking, insurance, health, big data, tax and superannuation/retirement incomes sectors," Ms Lyon said.
For his part, Mr Bell said, "It has been a privilege to lead the institute over the past four years and work with a talented and highly motivated team as well as committed members, including many senior executives.
"The institute is an incredibly impressive and influential organisation predominantly because of the calibre of its members, around Australia and overseas."
