Default Thoughts on new director of the Actuarial Program

I hear possible successors to Dr. Daniel are coming by giving speeches on campus.

Since I'm no longer on campus, any thoughts, opinions???? Front runners?

The job has been offered to and accepted by Dr. Mark Maxwell, ASA, currently director of the actuarial program at Robert Morris University outside Pittsburgh. He's joining the Math faculty here this summer to overlap with me for a year, and then will succeed me as Director upon my retirement from UT-Austin teaching 31 August 2010.

Here's a link to the website for RMU's actuarial program:
http://www.rmu.edu/OnTheMove/wpmajde...edby=WPMAJDEGR

and here are Maxwell's e-mail addresses:
maxwell@rmu.edu
maxwell@math.utexas.edu (already active)

The program will be in good hands.

Jim Daniel

And all the many students---the good ones, the interesting ones, the odd-balls---have brought me enormous pleasure and many personal rewards as I've watched them develop over the years.

Jim Daniel (still 17.5 months to go before retiring from UT)
