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”.

Hub acquisition includes a real pro


Hub International Ltd. announced earlier this week that it has acquired the assets of Signature Insurance Group, Inc., a Woodinville, Wash.-based insurance benefits brokerage firm. Signature will become part of Chicago-based Hub's Hub International Northwest operation.

As is often the case in such matters, the terms of the acquisition weren't disclosed. But what makes this acquisition a bit more interesting than many is that in acquiring Signature, Hub is also acquitting the services of Dennis Boyd, who served as Signature's vp-real estate sales.

Mr. Boyd is a former pro football player. After playing for Oregon State, he spent his entire pro career—which lasted from 1977 to 1982—with the Seattle Seahawks. It's not every transaction comes with a real pro as a bonus.
