American International Group Inc. has appointed Anthony Baldwin CEO of its U.K. operations, the insurer announced Monday.

“Under Anthony's strong leadership, I am confident that the U.K. team will build on this momentum and continue to expand the business by effectively balancing growth, profitability and risk,” he added.

“I am delighted to be assuming responsibility for AIG in the United Kingdom at an exciting time for the business and look forward to working with our talented team to realize the great potential for profitable growth in the U.K. market,” Mr. Baldwin said in the statement.
