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”.

Women to Watch: Pamela Carpenter


Pamela Carpenter

Chief Operating Officer, Travelers National Accounts

St. Paul Travelers Cos. Inc.

Hartford, Conn.

Age: 52

Pamela Carpenter started in the industry as an account executive with Travelers in 1977, and later served as a manager in commercial lines in the Hartford, Conn., field office. In 1990, she became underwriting officer for the national accounts Northeast region. In 1998, she moved to the Hartford base of operations as a chief underwriting officer until assuming her current duties this year.

Advice to young women: "I would encourage them to pursue opportunities in the underwriting and marketing areas and to fix their sights on management positions. Although progress has been made, women are underrepresented in these roles in our industry and there is great opportunity for young women in this industry in the coming years. By staying focused, doing your job with integrity and accepting challenges, any young worker can build a foundation for a promising future."
