American International Group (AIG) has named Kevin Hogan, who previously had a 24-year career at AIG, the new CEO of AIG Global Consumer Insurance. Hogan was most recently CEO of global life for Zurich Insurance Group, but is expected to formally rejoin AIG in early-October.

In 2005, he became AIG’s Senior Life Division executive for China and Taiwan, where he was responsible for AIA China and Nan-Shan. In 2008, he returned to New York as AIG’s chief distribution officer, foreign life and retirement services. Hogan joined Zurich in December 2008 as CEO, global life americas. He became CEO, global life, in July 2010.
