IRMI Acquires D&O MAPS From Warren Brockmeier
Dallas, TX, October 1, 2001—Dallas-based International Risk Management Institute, Inc. (IRMI), has acquired D&O MAPS, a Web-based information service focusing on directors and officers (D&O) liability insurance, from author and publisher Warren Brockmeier. D&O MAPS is located at http://www.dnomaps.com.
D&O MAPS is the premier source of information on a very important insurance coverage-the policies purchased to protect the officers and directors of America's corporations, and the officers and trustees of its educational institutions and nonprofit organizations. D&O MAPS provides information about the D&O marketplace, explanations of typical policy provisions, and specific information about the programs and policies available from the over 60 insurers serving the U.S. marketplace.
"I wanted to turn the reins over to a company that I knew had the resources and wherewithal to maintain the quality my subscribers have come to expect in the publication-and to even improve upon it. IRMI was my first choice to become publisher, and I am delighted that IRMI will be the one serving them in the future," said Brockmeier.
In response, IRMI president Jack Gibson said, "We are proud that Warren chose us to continue D&O MAPS. It is exactly the type of reference service that IRMI excels at producing, and we will involve an experienced editorial team to continue providing insightful analyses that subscribers can confidently depend upon."
The editorial team will include Tom Briggin, CPCU, who has worked with Brockmeier behind the scenes on an independent contractor basis for quite some time, and Bob Bregman, CPCU. Bregman is editor of Professional Liability Insurance, a three-volume IRMI reference service. In addition, Gibson will serve as publisher, and Brockmeier will offer advice and counsel as Editor Emeritus.
