American International Group Inc (AIG.N) is considering former company veteran Brian Duperreault, who heads Hamilton Insurance Group, as its new chief executive, CNBC said, citing a media report.
Former CEO Peter Hancock decided to step down after coming under pressure from shareholders and the insurer's board, following poor financial performance.
Duperreault oversaw the turnaround of Marsh & McLennan Cos Inc (MMC.N) after the 2008 financial crisis.
AIG said it does not comment on rumors, when contacted.
