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”.

2023 Break Out Awards

A difficult market in many lines, rapidly changing technology and a tough litigation environment are all testing the abilities of the outstanding leaders honored in the Business Insurance 2023 Break Out Awards, but they are rising to the challenges.

With backgrounds ranging from busking to real estate sales, the diverse group of up-and-coming executives, which includes several Beatles fans as well as country music enthusiasts, is set to help shape the evolving insurance and risk management sector.

The 40 honorees selected for the awards program represent some of the most talented leaders emerging in the industry. To be eligible for the award, nominees must work in commercial insurance or related sectors and cannot have worked in the field for more than 15 years.

To maintain diversity in geography and types of organization, the honorees are grouped in four regions of the United States: Northeast, South, Midwest and West. All of the nominations — which highlighted the nominees’ client-service skills, expertise and leadership qualities — were reviewed by BI editors. After selecting finalists, we contacted references to learn more details about the nominees’ achievements.

The winners will be honored at live events in Chicago, New York and Los Angeles. Information on attending the events is available here.

In the following pages you can read interviews with all of this year’s winners and learn their views on navigating the hard market and problems they think need fixing in their sector, as well as their more youthful ambitions and what they like to do outside of work.
