AIG Names DeSantis Personal Auto President and CEO

AIG Insurance has named Anthony J. DeSantis president and chief executive officer of its Personal Auto Group. The Personal Auto Group includes aigdirect.com, the direct personal lines automobile insurance operations of American International Group Inc. (AIG); AIG Agency Auto, which provides personal lines insurance through a network of independent agencies and brokerages throughout the United States; and AIG Hawaii. Based in Wilmington, Del., DeSantis succeeds Bruce Marlow, who has left the company.

"Tony brings proven leadership and more than 20 years of experience with AIG's personal lines operations," says Kevin H. Kelley, president of AIG Domestic Personal Lines. "We appreciate Bruce Marlow's contributions over the past year during the integration of AIG Marketing and 21st Century into the Personal Auto Group."

DeSantis joined AIG in 1986, and has held several management and executive positions in the AIG personal lines companies, including president of AIG Marketing for AIG's direct auto business. He was named chief operating officer of aigdirect.com in September 2007 following the merger with 21st Century Insurance Group.

DeSantis holds a bachelor's degree in marketing from St. Joseph's University.
