Pinnacle’s growth has been spectacular during the past 12 months. We recently hired two highly-experienced credentialed actuaries, Linda Brobeck in San Francisco and Terrence Wright in Atlanta. Two of our Actuarial Analysts, Daniel Teuma and Nick Alicea, were conferred with the Associate of the Casualty Actuarial Society (ACAS) credential at the November 2016 CAS Annual Meeting. Pinnacle currently counts 28 credentialed actuaries among our staff. At the start of 2016 we had 20, and in 2003, when Pinnacle was founded, we had 10.
