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”.
HOUSTON-BASED PARTNER IN THE INSURANCE RECOVERY GROUP
Reed Smith L.L.P.
PREVIOUS POSITION: Houston-based partner with Gardere Wynne Sewell L.L.P.
LOOKING FORWARD TO: Working with a strategic-focused law firm and one of the largest and best insurance recovery groups in the world.
GOALS FOR NEW POSITION: Building a vibrant insurance recovery group in Houston.
CHALLENGES FACING INDUSTRY: More cyber liability issues. Virtually all crime will not be seen in the world of physical assets, but in the cyber world.
FIRST INDUSTRY JOB: Handling and later supervising property claims for one of the nation's largest casualty insurers, Farmers Insurance Group of Cos.
WHAT SURPRISED ME: The propensity of people to lie, even under oath.
ADVICE: Do the right thing, even when no one's looking.
OUTSIDE THE INDUSTRY, A DREAM JOB: Serving on a Mercy Ship.
HOBBIES: Sailing, cycling (and) woodworking. Did I mention sailing?
THING MOST PEOPLE DON'T KNOW ABOUT ME: I once put out a fire on a motorboat after the rest of the crew had abandoned ship.
WHEN I RETIRE: I want to continue doing good work, perhaps for a faith-based organization, and, yes, more sailing.
FAVORITE MEAL: Good food with even better friends, perhaps a bottle of wine, sitting in the cockpit of a sailboat.
CAN'T-MISS TELEVISION SHOW: None. I never get to the end of a year and wish I had watched more television. My advice: Turn off the television and go have some real-life adventures.
BEST CITY: Houston, a city that celebrates the ethnic diversity of its citizens and rewards ability rather than lineage.
ON A SATURDAY AFTERNOON: Sailing with friends.
