BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Alpharetta, Georgia-based vice president of environmental underwriting at Colony Specialty, a member of Argo Group International Holdings Ltd.

What we are doing at Colony is really focusing on innovation and digital platforms, constantly working on new digital programs that can get us ahead of the competition.

The first thing I’m doing is trying to put the right people in the right positions. I got to hire a few people and make sure that everyone is where they need to be so that we can have continued profitable growth for our shareholders.

There are so many moving different parts. When I was in college, I knew that I would go into the industry, but I didn’t realize that there were so many different components to the insurance industry, and I’m still surprised every day by different things.

You need to ask questions and be engaged and curious. In the industry, the sky is the limit, and your career is what you make of it.


The thing I’m excited most about is watching my team develop and grow as I move into a new role. It’s going to provide more opportunity from an underwriting and a leadership perspective. I have always said whenever there is change, there is opportunity.
