NEW YORK (Reuters) - Some members of insurer AIG's board are concerned about recent strong comments from their new chief executive Robert Benmosche, the Wall Street Journal said on Wednesday citing people familiar with the matter.
Bob Benmosche, the CEO who took over AIG after the financial crisis, has died. In August he announced that he had terminal cancer in an interview with Bloomberg's Betty Liu. He said his cancer "had begun massive mutations" and that now he had nine months to a year left to live.
Jan. 9 (Bloomberg) -- American International Group Inc. said it has a duty to weigh joining a suit by former Chief Executive Officer Maurice “Hank” Greenberg that claims the insurer’s 2008 U.S. bailout was unconstitutional. “The board of directors has fiduciary and legal obligations to the company and its shareholders to consider the demand served on us,” CEO Robert Benmosche said yesterday in a statement.
If the students graduating from Alfred University on May 18 are expecting a world-is-your-oyster type speech from speaker, AIG CEO and Alfred alumnus Robert Benmosche, then they may want to put on headphones during his portion of the ceremony.
Clark Troy submits:There was much speculation that the failure of Prudential PLC's bid to buy AIG's crown jewel in Asia, AIA, would result in a shake-up at the top of the British insurer. Instead, what we are seeing is a change at the top of AIG.
