American International Group (AIG) has appointed Brian Schreiber as new executive vice president for treasury and capital markets; and Robert Gender as senior vice president and treasurer.

In the newly created post, Schreiber 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.

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 CFO.

Schreiber joined AIG in 1997 as a portfolio manager in its Global Investment Group. Since then, he has held a series of positions of increasing responsibility before being named AIG vice president, strategic planning, in 2002 and senior vice president in 2003.

Gender, who will report to 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.

AIG executive vice president for finance, risk, and investments Peter Hancock said that the Brian’s and Bob’s appointments come at a critical juncture for AIG.

“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,” Hancock said.
