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”.

Business Insurance reveals US Insurance Awards winners


Business Insurance presented its inaugural U.S. Insurance Awards at an awards dinner in New York on March 8.

Also at the dinner, as previously announced, the Crain Lifetime Achievement Award was presented to Maurice R. Greenberg, chairman and CEO, C.V. Starr & Co. Inc.

The awards program was created to help address the industry’s talent crisis by funding the BI Scholarship Endowment. This endowment will open new opportunities to provide scholarships, grants and programming at universities without risk management degree programs, including historically black colleges and universities.

Recognizing that major achievements are seldom the work of individuals working in isolation, the U.S. Insurance Awards honor teams of professionals working on specific projects in the commercial insurance and risk management sector.

Finalists were selected by senior BI staff from more than 170 nominations. The winners were selected by a panel of 80 risk management professionals who independently assessed each of the nominated finalists.
