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”.

Meadowbrook names underwriting chief


Meadowbrook Insurance Group Inc. said Monday that Fred Browning has been promoted to chief underwriting officer.

He replaces Roger Walleck, who joined Missouri Employers Mutual earlier this year.

Mr. Browning was most recently Meadowbrook’s senior vice president of admitted carrier operations, Meadowbrook said in a statement. Prior to joining the Southfield, Michigan-based insurer last year, Mr. Browning was managing partner for Overland Group L.L.C., an insurance intermediary ani nsurance consulting firm. 

In his new position, Mr. Browning will lead Meadowbrook’s corporate underwriting functions, and will report to Nathan Voorhis, Meadowbrook’s chief operating officer.

“I am confident that under Fred’s leadership, we will achieve our potential as an underwriting company, and I look forward to working closely with him as he enhances our corporate underwriting functions,” Kenn Allen, Meadowbrook’s president and CEO, said in a statement.

Meadowbrook was bought by Chinese conglomerate Fosun International Ltd. in 2014.
