In memoriam Ad Kok

5 December 2023

Dear Members of the Actuarial Community,


It is with deep sadness that we share the news of the passing of Ad Kok.


Ad was a longstanding and esteemed member of the AAE (formerly Groupe Consultatif), where he held various pivotal roles, including Chairperson in 2007-2008 and Chairperson of the Freedoms Committee (now the Professionalism Committee) from 2002-2006.

Serving as the Chief Executive Officer of the AAE from 2013 to 2019, Ad’s dedication to the development of the actuarial profession was exemplary.


In recognition of his unwavering commitment, he was elected as an AAE Honorary Member in 2021.


Ad’s influence extended well beyond our organization; he was widely respected in the international actuarial community and earned honorary memberships from IFoA (Hon FIA) and the Royal Dutch Actuarial Association (erelid).


We extend our deepest condolences to Ad’s family and loved ones as they navigate this profound loss.


Ad will be remembered as a gentle and capable man, and his absence leaves a void that will be deeply felt.

Welcoming our new chairperson, Giampaolo Crenca

25 October 2023

Giampaolo Crenca

Chairperson AAE


After a term as Vice-Chairperson, Giampaolo Crenca has now been appointed Chairperson of the AAE, with Inga Helmane stepping into the role of Vice-Chairperson. In his first address to the General Assembly, the new Chairperson promised continuity alongside evolution, outlined a 3-year strategic plan and spoke about how an actuary is like an artist.

Giampaolo Crenca lives and works in Italy, where he has been deeply involved with multiple national actuarial organisations over many years. During his 30-year career he has been a valued consultant actuary, lectured at universities on the subject of actuarial and financial mathematics, and authored a number of books and articles, as well as gaining a PhD in Actuarial Science. More recently he has actively taken up various roles in AAE, including as Membre Titulaire, a member of the editorial board of The European Actuary and of the Communication Panel, and seats on a number of task forces – so while his qualifications are clear, one may need to read between the lines to understand that he is also a truly passionate advocate for the profession.
