Cos chmn Myron DuBain, interview, outlines plans
to promote its new commercial insurance line at coming
meeting of Risk and Insurance Management Society.Company
hopes to regain some market share it has lost during continuing
price war among insurers in which Fireman's has resisted
reducing price to gain new business. Company's premium
growth has trailed industry for 10 consecutive quarters
and posted 2.4% increase in latest, as against 6.2% for
industry. DuBain indicates that its independent agents
support its pricing philosophy, and, although some have
had to move to other companies, agents assert that Fireman's
will regain business once recession ends (S).

Shift at Fireman's
Daniel F. Cuff

Myron DuBain both started working for the Fireman's
Fund Insurance Company 36 years ago, and Mr. DuBain eventually
became chairman, president and chief executive of the
big insurer. Now, so has Mr. Cutler.
the parent company, said yesterday that Mr. Du-Bain, 59,
would retire Dec. 31 from the insurance operation and
as vice chairman of American Express. Mr. Cutler, 58,
was named to succeed him. He will become chairman and
chief executive of Fireman's Fund as well as chairman,
president and chief executive of Fireman's Fund/American
Express Inc., the holding company.
A company spokesman
said that it was Mr. DuBain's idea to retire early. Mr.
Cutler added: ''He had nine years at the helm and felt
it was time for someone else to have an opportunity to
bring some fresh perspectives.''
Fireman's Fund, with
headquarters in San Francisco, is among the nation's largest
property-liability insurers. Although both joined the
company in the same year, Mr. DuBain came up on the underwriting
side and Mr. Cutler on the financial side, holding such
jobs as controller.
''I plan to readdress
what we're doing and make sure the new team and I are
in full accord,'' Mr. Cutler said. ''I don't think what
we've been doing is wrong, but any new chief executive
is going to take a hard look.''
In addition, James
J. Meenaghan, 44, was elected president and chief operating
officer of the Fireman's Fund Insurance Company and vice
chairman of the holding company. Daniel F. Cuff
