The Financial Institutions Insurance Association has hired an executive director-Margie Lechowicz-according to Richard D. Starr, chairman of the Corte Madera, Calif., trade group.

Ms. Lechowicz started Tuesday as successor to Alice Berreyesa, a seven- year veteran of the group. In a prepared statement, Ms. Berreyesa said she was forced to step down because of "a major medical condition."

"She really helped grow the organization," Mr. Starr said.

Ms. Lechowicz had been director of the Northern California Human Resources Association in San Francisco.
