Spirit of Maryville 2017: Kathryn Cox

Kathryn Cox, ’91, has enjoyed a successful career in actuarial science at RGA, where she first began as a Maryville student intern. As senior vice president of business development, Cox works with client companies on the front lines, leading a team of senior level associates in strategic planning and execution, relationship-building and data analytics.

The seeds of her successful career (she has also earned the distinction of Fellow of the Society of Actuaries) are rooted at Maryville, where she served as president of the Actuarial Science Club and developed ties that would endure far beyond graduation. Cox has helped actuarial science graduates from Maryville begin building their own successful careers at RGA. Approximately 100 RGA employees are Maryville graduates, out of a total of 2,200 employees worldwide.

For the many Maryville alumni who now work at the company, Cox is a role model and mentor. She is a member of Maryville’s National Leadership Council and the Duchesne Society, and served as chair of the former College of Arts and Sciences National Leadership Council.
