Brian Duperreault spoke briefly at the American International Group Inc., annual shareholders meeting Wednesday, the company’s first since he rejoined as CEO in April.

Mr. Duperreault said that although he is still in his first days at the helm of the insurer, he thinks there is “great value in the company’s multiline structure.”

He also said that he wants AIG to be the most technologically advanced company in the industry. “Technology will help us operate more efficiently,” he told shareholders.

He added that AIG was prepared to pursue both organic and inorganic growth.

Mr. Duperreault spent 21 years at AIG before leaving to lead the former Ace Ltd. in Bermuda. He has also been CEO at Marsh & McLennan Cos. Inc. and Hamilton Insurance Group Ltd. in Bermuda.

During his comments, he recounted how he started his career in the insurance industry as an actuarial trainee at AIG and how rejoining the firm was like coming home.

“It’s great to be back,” he said.
