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”.

Alera Group appoints president

Alera Group appoints president

Deerfield, Illinois-based Alera Group said Monday it had appointed former Marsh & McClennan executive Jim Blue to the new position of president, effective May 1.

Mr. Blue comes to Alera directly from his former position as CEO of Marsh & McLennan Agency-Northeast, and will work closely with the existing leadership team to focus on revenue growth and integration of new Alera Group firms, the brokerage said in a statement.

In his previous role, Mr. Blue grew a small, local firm into a national hub for his former employer, Alera said, an experience that positions him as a strong leader. He will be based in Boston.

Alera Group, a private-equity-backed firm, was formed in 2016 and has 1,000 employees, 61 locations and 49 firms, according to its website.
