A unique insider view into the recent AIG crisis and Hank Greenberg
For nearly 40 years, Maurice "Hank" Greenberg was one of the most powerful CEOs in America. He built American International Group (AIG) from a second-rate insurer with a great Chinese franchise into one of the world's most profitable companies. But times have certainly changed, and now, in the Second Edition of Fallen Giant, author Ronald Shelp-who worked alongside Greenberg and within the AIG organization for many years-with the help of Al Ehrbar, sheds light on both AIG, the company, and Hank Greenberg, the man.
This fully updated Second Edition digs deep to uncover the latest developments for both Greenberg and AIG, such as the many lawsuits underway, including a criminal trial that will send five men-one who still works for Greenberg-to prison. It also chronicles the incredible story of how AIG was rescued by the Fed, and why the government had no choice in the matter.
Filled with international intrigue and expert business acumen, the Second Edition of Fallen Giant paints a compelling portrait of both the past successes and current crises of Hank Greenberg and AIG.
From the Inside Flap:
Over its eighty-nine-year history, American International Group, better known as AIG, has achieved unparalleled success by adjusting to changing economic trends, regulatory rules, and political situations. While founder Cornelius Vander Starr?who led this Shanghai start-up for fifty years?built an extraordinary insurance franchise, it was his hand-picked successor, Maurice "Hank" Greenberg, who would turn that franchise into one of the world's most profitable and powerful financial services companies.
Now, in Fallen Giant, author Ron Shelp?who worked alongside Greenberg and within the AIG organization for more than a decade?sheds light on AIG, the company, and Hank Greenberg, the man. Through in-depth research, candid interviews, and firsthand experiences, Shelp provides a detailed look at how AIG was originally created and reveals the trouble that Greenberg and company eventually ran into when New York State Attorney General Eliot Spitzer turned his sights on them.
Entertaining and informative, Fallen Giant follows AIG from its humble beginnings in Shanghai to its modern-day offices in New York City?where Chinese involvement can still be found. Along the way, you'll meet a unique group of individuals?from Russia and China to the United States?who helped shape the company's culture, and discover the unpredictable events that changed the course of the company.
Filled with international intrigue and expert business acumen, Fallen Giant carefully details how founder Cornelius Vander Starr built his empire?from American Asiatic Underwriters to AIG?and why he ultimately handed it off to the dynamic, driven, and tough-minded Hank Greenberg. With Greenberg at the helm, you'll learn how this calculated risk-taker transformed AIG into a public entity, expanded its operations to new countries, and acquired huge businesses. You'll also see how Greenberg's numerous
connections with both politicians and business professionals allowed him to become a highly visible spokesman for the industry, a leader in the nonprofit and philanthropic worlds, and an important figure in foreign policy circles.
Through a unique insider's view, Fallen Giant paints a compelling portrait of how the world's largest provider of property and casualty insurance came to be and reveals how Greenberg's unrelenting drive to be the best may have led to his untimely departure from AIG.
