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”.

2021 Business Insurance US Insurance Awards

USIA logo

The 2021 Business Insurance U.S. Insurance Awards celebrate a wide range of teams and individuals from across the insurance and risk management sector.

Finalists and winners range from risk management teams adapting to new demands during the pandemic to brokers and insurers offering products and services to help policyholders during economic disruption and the hard market, and various companies responding to changing cultural and social concerns.

The centerpiece of the awards event, which was held virtually in September, was the presentation of the 2021 Lifetime Achievement Award to Brian Duperreault, executive chairman of American International Group Inc., who was also inducted into the Business Insurance Hall of Fame (see profile here).

The team awards recognize the achievements of groups of insurance and risk management professionals who collaborated on specific projects in the sector.

The nomination period for the awards opened in April, and we received more than 180 nominations. Finalists in 10 categories were selected by Business Insurance staff. The winners were selected by a panel of more than 40 risk managers who independently assessed each of the finalists.

The awards event also raised funds for the Business Insurance Scholarship, which was founded to help address the talent crisis facing the insurance sector and is administered by the Spencer Educational Foundation Inc. This year’s recipients are Thomas Beaudet, an actuarial science major at Temple University in Philadelphia, and Charlene Hao, who is majoring in mathematics with a concentration in actuarial science at California State University-Fullerton.

Links to profiles of the USIA winners are below, and the video presentation can be seen here.
