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: Christine Dandridge


Christine Dandridge

Executive Director

Atrium Underwriting P.L.C.


Age: 50

Christine Dandridge began her career at Lloyd's of London in 1978 as a broker. She moved over to underwriting in 1980 and was named deputy underwriter of Atrium's Syndicate 609 in 1984. She became active underwriter in 1997 and she has been a director of Atrium since 1986. Ms. Dandridge is currently a member of the Lloyd's Market Assn. Marine Committee and the Council of Lloyd's.

Greatest influence: "There were three people who influenced me: Sir David Rowland (former Chairman of Lloyd's) who gave me my first job--but for him I would not be working in insurance at all; Ian Posgate (former Lloyd's underwriter and former member of the Council of Lloyd's) who I worked for in my first underwriting position--he was a brilliant negotiator; and lastly Mark Denby, the founder of Atrium Underwriting who proved that it's possible to have integrity and still be successful in the London market."
