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: Trish Getty


Trish Getty

CEO/Executive Director

Assn. of Insurance and Reinsurance Run-Off Cos.

Alpharetta, Ga.

Age: 58

Trish Getty has been active in the insurance and reinsurance industry for more than 40 years. She spent most of her career in the area of reinsurance claims, cutting her teeth with Berkshire Hathaway's National Indemnity Re, where she spent the first 12 years of her reinsurance career. After serving in several management positions in the reinsurance industry, in 2004, she worked with a handful of insurance veterans to form the Assn. of Insurance and Reinsurance Run-Off Cos. as a way for insurers and reinsurers to address the common concerns associated with run-off business and to work together to identify solutions to their common problems. Serving as its founding CEO and executive director, Ms. Getty has built AIRROC in less than two years into an association with 55 members, including many of the world's largest insurers and reinsurers.

Greatest influence: "Art Betz, who was the director of reinsurance claims throughout the '70s and early '80s at National Indemnity Re. He was a son of a college professor, so he also loved to teach and I became his student and he my mentor. He taught me to be 100% honest; he grilled me on reinsurance and primary coverages; he pushed me into taking several insurance courses; and he gave me the confidence that I could achieve my goals. I owe so much to him."
