Boca Raton, FL – Kathy Antonello, FCAS, FSA, MAAA, and chief actuary at the National Council on Compensation Insurance (NCCI), was selected by Business Insurance as one of 25 “Women to Watch” in 2016. The honorees will be recognized at the Women to Watch leadership conference and awards luncheon December 12–13 in New York City.
Antonello is NCCI’s first female chief actuary and leads the Actuarial and Economic Services Division, which contributes to maintaining a healthy workers compensation system through the design and delivery of all actuarial and economic work at NCCI. Antonello earned her BS degree in mathematics from Birmingham-Southern College in Birmingham, AL.

“We are pleased that Business Insurance has chosen to recognize Kathy’s many professional accomplishments by selecting her as a Woman to Watch in 2016,” said NCCI President and CEO Bill Donnell.
Business Insurance started the Women to Watch awards program in 2006 to recognize women leaders doing outstanding work in risk management and commercial insurance. Business Insurance readers nominate candidates for Women to Watch, and a panel of Business Insurance editors select the honorees based on those nominations. Nominations are evaluated on four criteria: recent professional accomplishments, expertise, leadership, and future career prospects.
