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”.

QBE promotes Michael Foley to head commercial business

Michael Foley

QBE North America on Wednesday named Michael Foley president, commercial insurance, replacing Tom Fitzgerald, who left the insurer earlier this year.

Boston-based Mr. Foley, who joined QBE from Berkshire Hathaway Specialty Insurance Co. last year as chief underwriting officer of its commercial casualty business, will report to Todd Jones, CEO of QBE North America, and join the insurer’s North America executive management board, a QBE statement said.

He will head middle market, commercial casualty, workers compensation programs and commercial property programs, the statement said.

Mr. Fitzgerald, who joined QBE as president of specialty and commercial in 2020, joined World Insurance Associates LLC as president of its retail business in January.
