Stephen A. White was named president and CEO of Milliman, confirmed spokesman Jeremy Engdahl-Johnson.

Mr. White replaces Patrick Grannan, who retired after 34 years with the firm. Mr. Grannan had been president and CEO since 2001.

Mr. White's appointment is effective immediately, Mr. Engdahl-Johnson said in a telephone interview. The principals chose Mr. White through an internal election process, and the choice was confirmed by Milliman's board.
