AIG snags executive from XL Group


American International Group Inc. said Thursday it has recruited Anthony Vidovich from XL Group Ltd. to be AIG’s chief claims officer, general insurance, effective May 14.

Mr. Vidovich joins New York-based AIG from Hamilton, Bermuda-based XL, which does business as XL Catlin, where he served as global head of claims, insurance and reinsurance, since 2015, AIG said in its statement.

In his new role, Mr. Vidovich will be responsible for general insurance claims’ strategic direction, encompassing governance and policy, settlement authorities, claims handling and global best practices, said AIG.

He will report to Peter Zaffino, chief executive officer, general insurance, and serve as a member of the general insurance executive leadership team, the statement said.

The appointment is one of several senior appointments at AIG since Brian Duperreault returned to head the insurer last year.
