AIG Departures Mount as AIA's Wilson, Chairman Golub are Forced Out: Table

Mark Wilson, who was replaced as leader of American International Group Inc.’s main Asia unit, joins more than 70 managers who defected to competitors, retired or were forced out following the insurer’s rescue.

Former Prudential Plc Chief Executive Officer Mark Tucker will be the new head of AIA Group Ltd, AIG said yesterday. AIG CEO Robert Benmosche told staff in a memo that AIA needs to put “the best team of the field” to prepare for the unit’s initial public offering. Harvey Golub stepped down last week as AIG’s chairman after clashing with Benmosche over AIA.

The following table lists managers who have left since New York-based AIG was rescued by the U.S. in a 2008 bailout that swelled to $182.3 billion. The table was compiled from company statements and news reports. Some job titles, companies and employee first names have been abbreviated for space, and the new employers of some people weren’t immediately available.
