American International Group, Inc. (AIG) announced the appointments of Brian T. Schreiber as Executive Vice President, Treasury and Capital Markets, and Robert Gender as Senior Vice President and Treasurer.
Mr. Schreiber is taking on a broad, newly created role in which he will oversee AIG's Treasury function; the development of AIG Markets, which will manage AIG's parent company invested assets and debt obligations in partnership with AIG's Asset Management Group; Strategic Planning; and Investor Relations. Mr. Schreiber, who as head of Strategic Planning has led AIG's restructuring and corporate development efforts to date, will report to David Herzog, AIG Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer.
Mr. Gender, who will report to Mr. Schreiber, has served as AIG's Treasurer since 2005. He joined AIG in 1998 as Assistant Treasurer with responsibility for the management of AIG's banking relations, liquidity, and corporate finance.
"Brian's and Bob's appointments come at a critical juncture for AIG," said Peter Hancock, AIG Executive Vice President, Finance, Risk, and Investments. "As we emerge from our restructuring, and particularly as we move toward re-entering the capital markets, we remain fundamentally committed to a strong finance and risk organization charged with preserving and enhancing our financial strength for the benefit of all of our stakeholders. Brian's and Bob's appointments are the latest examples of our momentum in this effort, and their experience and commitment will help advance the performance of our team. Brian has played an instrumental role in the success of AIG's restructuring, and his capital markets experience, knowledge of AIG's continuing businesses energy, and focus will help AIG re-enter the capital markets and achieve our future objectives. Bob's professional management of our Treasury function has been critical as AIG has navigated the financial crisis."
