Ex-Decatur man hopes play will inspire reading
By Ronnie Thomas

A former Decatur resident has written a play he thinks will encourage children and adults to read.

Ralph E. Olson, 79, wrote “The Master Poet” based on his experiences tutoring adults. The 81-page play is three acts, which tell the story of a wandering poet who has a chance meeting with a girl who talks him into teaching her to read.

...

An actuary for insurance companies, he relocated to Decatur in January 1978. He moved to Huntsville in 2003, where he lives in Carlton Cove, a continuing care retirement community.

“The Master Poet,” published by Infinity Publishing, is available at www.buybooksontheweb.com

The Geelong-born [Andrew] Sisson, 54, runs a tiny boutique funds management firm called Balanced Equity Management, which he set up in 1988. At the start, there was so little money coming through the door that he couldn't pay himself a cent. Now, his firm would be one of the most profitable in the country and it's run on a shoestring with just 11 employees.

Along with team members Andrew McGann and Steven Fahey, he looks after $12.3 billion of Other People's Money.

...

Ask people in the money game what they think of Andrew Sisson, who trained as an actuary before working as a fund manager for the old National Mutual Life group, and they always talk about his brain.

"He's outstanding. He's just intellectually brilliant," says one fund manager. "He's as straight as an arrow. He has a very low profile, but in a situation like this, he and his Balanced Equity company are in the public eye because he's a hold-out on the Qantas takeover.

"People are saying, 'Balanced who? Well, hey, that's Sisson, McGann and Fahey."

Over the years, Mr Sisson has made a lot of money out of options, futures, convertible notes and other not so ordinary investments.

To one professional money manager, that's another sign of Mr Sisson's intellect.

"Mathematically, he would eat that stuff for breakfast," he says.

I’ve worked as an actuarial specialist for an insurance company right after college. After three long years, I realized that I’m not cut out for the corporate world. I missed seeing trees, flowers and smelling fresh air. So I traded the busy streets of Ayala Avenue for the lush greens of Antipolo to go into teaching and feel a deeper sense of fulfillment. I’ve been teaching for two years now and loving it, not every minute of it but most of it.

Top Insurance Executive Will Leave To Study Religion
NU Online News Service, April 16, 2007, 5:49 p.m. EDT

Frederick Sievert, president of New York Life Insurance Company, plans to retire from the company in June.

Sievert, 59, says he will fullfil a long-held dream this fall, by entering the master’s degree program at Yale Divinity School.

Sievert began working for New York Life as a senior vice president in 1992. He became a vice chairman in 1997, and he became president in 2002. He has been active in leading New York Life operations outside the United States as well as domestically.

Sievert took over the title of president from Sy Sternberg, who assumed the title of president in 1995 and the title of chairman in 1997. Sternberg continues to be the chairman of New York Life.

Sievert has a bachelor’s degree from Amherst College and a master’s degree from Wayne State University. He was a secondary school teacher for 7 years before entering the insurance business.
Frederick J. Sievert, FSA 1982, is a great guy. I enjoyed working for him, years ago. He'll be missed.
