American International Group (AIG) has appointed Jeffrey Farber as new senior vice president, deputy chief financial officer.

In this new role, Farber will provide global leadership and coordination for AIG’s controllership and accounting policy functions, as well as the AIG global tax department.

He will report to David Herzog, AIG executive vice president and chief financial officer.

Farber most recently served as executive vice president of finance and corporate development and chief financial officer at Gamco Investors. Prior to this, he was senior vice president, finance, and controller at Bear Stearns, and an Audit Partner at Deloitte and Touche.

Herzog said over the past several years the finance team has worked diligently through an extraordinarily complex restructuring, and this new role provides Jeff with an opportunity to lead a great team and work closely with the finance transformation team as AIG roll out the new financial platform.
