Abstract

This fictional case describes an array of ethical issues that a corporate manager in a major US insurance company faced, and perhaps created, which led ultimately to his forced resignation. This is told retrospectively so students can see the reactions and recollections others had about his leadership style, his possible transgressions, and the toxic environment he created. Within the context of the role of actuaries and financial analysts in an insurance company coping with a major merger and the controversial regulations imposed by the Sarbanes-Oxley legislation, this case provides an opportunity to explore and debate managerial responsibility. This provides an opportunity to delve into the often subtle issues that underlie corporate responsiveness to their investors and regulators, as well as the role of a key manager in setting the climate for compliance and work performance.
