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”.

Western World CEO to retire upon takeover by Validus


Thomas Mulligan will retire as president and CEO of Western World Insurance Group Inc. effective Jan. 1, 2015, following the completion of the firm’s acquisition by Validus Holdings Ltd., on Oct. 2, Western World said in a statement Tuesday.

Mr. Mulligan, who will continue to serve on the Franklin Lakes, New Jersey-based Western World board, will be succeeded by Robert Livingston, the company’s current chief operating officer and chief financial officer.

Western World was acquired by Validus in a $690 million all-cash deal that was announced in late June and closed on Oct. 2.

Western World will continue to operate as a standalone business.
