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”.
HEAD OF RICHMOND, VIRGINIA, OFFICE
PREVIOUS POSITION: Richmond-based director with Ernst & Young L.L.C.
LOOKING FORWARD TO: The job has a great deal of potential to inspire people and build best-in-class relationships. I am looking forward to working with a team that is considered the best in the industry.
GOALS FOR NEW POSITION: There are a lot of tenured, seasoned employees here in Richmond, and we want to ignite that. We want to give that all to our clients. That's pretty exciting.
CHALLENGES FACING INDUSTRY: The umbrella of risk has evolved and grown. What was considered the management of an insurance program has turned into a boardroom conversation. The industry is evolving, just as risk is evolving. The challenge is staying ahead of the boardroom discussions.
WHAT I WOULD CHANGE: We need to be bigger than just looking at insurance renewals. We are in that moment of change.
FIRST INDUSTRY JOB: At Ernst & Young. (This is) a mid-career jump for me.
WHAT SURPRISED ME: How similar the discussions were between an insurance broker and an accountant. You are still having a business discussion. These are just discussions on doing right by the business.
OUTSIDE THE INDUSTRY, A DREAM JOB: If I had the ability, I would have been an interior designer.
HOBBIES: I'm an avid reader, and I love tennis. I love vegetarian cooking.
CAN'T-MISS TELEVISION SHOW: I'm a sports fan. I like college football and college basketball.
