I look forward to her strong leadership in this important role as we continue to develop strategies and business opportunities with a focus on using technology to better reach and interact with our clients.”
AIG Commercial Insurance CEO Doyle identifies technology as a key enabler for the company’s commercial insurance strategy in support of a vision to become its clients’ most valued insurer. “In her role, Annabelle will bring her unique view of emerging technology trends to further AIG’s progress toward becoming a truly digital organization, with the aim of delivering products and services in a way that will be a differentiator for AIG,” he comments.
