AIG has appointed Lisa Sun as CEO of AIG Insurance Company China, succeeding Eric Zheng who is leaving the company to pursue other opportunities.
Sun rejoins AIG from Mercer, where she was most recently CEO of the firm’s Hong Kong and South and East Asia Zone. Prior to joining Mercer in 2013, she served five years at Zurich, before which she was deputy chief actuary and vice president for worldwide accident and health at AIG Life Companies.
Based in Shanghai, she will report to AIG international general insurance CEO, Chris Townsend, with her appointment subject to regulatory approval by the China Banking and Insurance Regulatory Commission.
Commenting on the hire, Townsend said: “China is a core growth market for AIG. I am pleased to welcome Lisa back to AIG to take on the important role of leading our China business. I look forward to working closely with Lisa and the team in this dynamic region.”
He added: “We thank Eric for his hard work with AIG China over the last 14 years and we wish him well in his next endeavour.”
