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”.

“We thank Leigh Ann for the dynamic and energetic leadership she provided during her tenure as president and CEO of the AIA,” AIA’s Chairman and Hartford Financial Services Group Inc. ’s Chairman & CEO Christopher Swift, said in a statement on Wednesday. “During that time, she built a strong, dedicated team of professionals who everyday zealously represent the property-casualty industry in Washington D.C. and in state capitals across the nation.”

“It has been a tremendous privilege to lead AIA for the past eight years,” Ms. Pusey said in the statement. “I look forward to watching AIA as it continues to lead our industry’s advocacy efforts.”

Ms. Pusey will be joining Indianapolis-based Eli Lilly as senior vice president of corporate affairs and communications effective June 12 and will be on the pharmaceutical company’s executive committee reporting directly to President and Chief Executive Officer David Ricks. She will be based in Washington.
