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”.

NEW JOB TITLE: Vp of marketing for Chicago-based Hub International Ltd.

PREVIOUS POSITION: Chicago-based regional placement officer for the Midwest for New York-based Willis North America.

CHALLENGES FACING INDUSTRY: Attracting and keeping young, dynamic talent is a major challenge for us in the insurance industry. Another challenge is harnessing the power of technology.

INDUSTRY OUTLOOK: I see that we are a mature industry that has not fully embraced the fact that we need to utilize technology and communication tools we have available to be more effective in delivering products and service. I see we will be a bit challenged avoiding the pitfall that all insurance will be bought on a computer.

ADVICE: Specialize. To be successful in this industry, you have to pick a major, so to speak. You have to specialize in an industry and know it backward and forward.

OUTSIDE THE INDUSTRY, A DREAM JOB: The insurance industry is my dream job. But what would I do if I were not in insurance? It would be something to do with my three kids, something that holds their interest, whether it be in sports or music.

HOBBIES: Sports or snow skiing. Water skiing. Watching hockey or lacrosse. Music.


CAN'T-MISS TELEVISION SHOW: “The Big Bang Theory.” The humor is enjoyable for my whole family, so we watch it together.

EMAIL OR PHONE, AND WHY: Telephone. It's quicker and much more efficient, and a better way to understand how your conversation and communication is being received.
