“Monika Machon is a leader with deep financial and insurance industry experience,” said Robert H. Benmosche, AIG President and Chief Executive Officer. “In her new role, Monika oversees the work of the AIG Treasury team, optimizing AIG’s funding sources and capital structure while also working to reduce our costs of capital and generating greater financial flexibility.”
Mr. Benmosche continued, “Bringing Brian Schreiber back to his roots in AIG Investments is an important step for AIG, as we look to maximize returns and take a consolidated approach to all investments across AIG. This is an area where AIG will distinguish itself. Brian has a proven track record and transformed AIG’s Treasury function since taking over in 2011.
