 PHILIP ENGEL APPOINTED PRESIDENT OF CNA INSURANCE COMPANIES
 CHICAGO, Oct. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Dennis H. Chookaszian, chairman and chief executive officer of the CNA Insurance Companies, today announced that Philip L. Engel has been named president of the Chicago- headquartered multiline company.
 Engel, 52, had been executive vice president of the CNA Insurance Companies since 1990. Prior to that, he had been vice president of systems and services, following 11 years as vice president of marketing. He began his career with CNA in 1961 and has held a number of technical and management positions with the company.
 "As president, Phil Engel will assume new responsibilities for developing, coordinating and managing CNA's business strategies," Chookaszian said in his announcement. "These include close involvement in managing the evolutionary process of change in CNA operations that will be required to meet the business challenges of the 1990s. He also will coordinate the efforts of CNA's policy and operating departments to ensure consistent direction, efficient support and economies of scale."
 Engel is a director of CNA Financial Corporation, parent company of the CNA Insurance Companies.
 He will continue to represent CNA on the board of directors and executive committee of a key industry policy body, the Insurance Services Office, and will remain chairman of the board of Agency Management Services, Inc., an automation company that is majority-owned by CNA and serves independent insurance agents.
 Engel is a Fellow of the Society of Actuaries and a Fellow of the Casualty Actuarial Society, one of few individuals in the United States to hold both these designations. He is also a member of the American Academy of Actuaries.
 A 1961 graduate of the University of Chicago, Engel received a master's degree in business administration from the University of Chicago in 1980.
 "This appointment strengthens and enhances CNA's existing management structure, which has served us so effectively in the past as CNA has risen to pre-eminence in our industry," Chookaszian said. "We now have in place an organization soundly positioned to allow us to achieve even greater growth and stature."
 CNA is one of the 10 largest insurance organizations in the United States and is 83 percent owned by Loews Corporation, headquartered in New York.
