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”.

CNA commercial president and COO Lindemann to retire


Robert Lindemann will retire as president and chief operating officer of CNA Commercial on Dec. 31, CNA Financial Corp. announced Friday.

Dave Rutkowski, senior vice president of commercial underwriting, will assume Mr. Lindemann’s responsibilities until a replacement is named, the Chicago-based insurer said in a statement.

Mr. Lindemann joined CNA as president and chief operating officer in 2009.

Since then, he has strengthened CNA’s top and bottom lines and product offerings, and helped to establish many of the company’s core segments, according to the statement.

“Bob is among the most respected underwriters and leaders in the commercial insurance industry,” CNA Chairman and CEO Thomas F. Motamed said in the statement. “He played a critical role in launching our customer segment strategy, and I want to thank him for the tremendous contributions he has made to the company and the industry.”
