American International Group (AIG) has named Anastasia D. Kelly vice chair, reporting to AIG chair and CEO Edward J. Liddy. Ms. Kelly, who currently serves as executive vice president, general counsel and senior regulatory and compliance officer for the carrier, will take on the additional responsibilities of communications, corporate affairs and human resources.

"With the alignment of policy functions under Stasia's leadership, and the recent organization of administrative functions under vice chairman Richard Booth, and asset disposition functions under vice chair Paula Reynolds, AIG's corporate activities are better positioned to achieve our goals of repaying American taxpayers and restoring AIG's financial health," said Mr. Liddy.

Ms. Kelly joined AIG in September 2006. She was previously executive vice president and general counsel of MCI/WorldCom, where she served as the chief legal officer from 2003 until the company's merger with Verizon in early 2006. Earlier Ms. Kelly had served as general counsel of Sears, Roebuck and Fannie Mae and was a partner at Wilmer Hale in Washington, D.C.
