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”.

Cecilia Norat

Director, State Relations

American International Group Inc.

New York

Prior to joining AIG, Cecilia Norat was executive director of the New York State Insurance Fund from 1990 to 1996. She joined AIG as senior vp of AIG Claims Services Inc. She assumed her current position in 1999, leading a team responsible for tracking and analyzing proposed changes to insurance regulations and legislation in all 50 states. Ms. Norat was the Assn. of Professional Insurance Women Inc.'s Insurance Woman of the Year in 1996.

Greatest influence: Former New York Gov. Mario Cuomo has been the most influential person in Ms. Norat's career because he gave her the opportunity to join the New York State Insurance Fund as deputy executive director in 1986 after she graduated from Fordham University Law School that year. "That was the biggest boost to my career."
