Paul Driessen Taylor Fry

Paul leads our Injury Schemes practice, bringing more than 25 years of commercial and public sector actuarial experience to the role. Acknowledging the importance of injury schemes in the lives of people impacted by trauma and sometimes tragedy, his guidance is clear and straightforward.

Joining Taylor Fry in 2009, Paul advises large insurers, self-insurers and scheme regulators, across workers compensation, CTP and catastrophic injury insurance. He fosters strong relationships with his clients, deepened by a genuine interest in listening to and helping them solve their problems. Paul says:

“When I think of actuaries using data for good, I think of our work in injury and disability schemes – working behind the scenes to support these schemes makes an important contribution to society.”

He has also developed and conducted training programs for analysts and supervisors at the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority, and is a regular speaker to industry and actuarial professionals.

Previously, Paul was direct insurance head actuary at IAG and a consultant at Tillinghast-Towers Perrin in Australia and the United States.
