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”.

Jacqueline Day
Managing director, crisis and security consulting, Americas region
Control Risks Group Holdings Ltd.
Age: 36

Jacqueline Day developed a global perspective early in life that has led to her current position as managing director for crisis and security consulting in the Americas region for Washington-based Control Risks Group Holdings Ltd.

“I was born abroad in Japan and traveled a lot internationally from a very young age. So I would say that's the first driver — early exposure to foreign cultures and places — that really got me interested in international affairs and security issues,” Ms. Day said.

Her sensibilities grew while an undergraduate at Georgetown University and while she got an M.A. in law and diplomacy from The Fletcher School at Tufts University. She worked at the Pentagon and was across the street in a meeting when it was attacked by terrorists on Sept. 11, 2001. “For me it was and still is a very powerful motivator to remain involved in the field of international security and risk management,” she said.

One career highlight was serving as project director for Control Risks at the recent World Cup in Brazil. Another is being mother of a 2-year-old boy born in Brazil.

Ms. Day mentors women and men through Control Risks' mentoring program. “She has a dedication to perfection,” said Jim Brooks, CEO and president for the Americas at Control Risks. And her “strong leadership and interpersonal skills combined with technical knowledge” impress Jim Fairbaugh, head of global security and safety, Americas region and global data centers, for Yahoo Inc., Sunnyvale, California.
