NEW YORK, Dec 30, 2009 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- American International Group, Inc. (AIG) today announced that Anastasia Kelly, Vice Chairman for Legal, Human Resources, Corporate Affairs, and Corporate Communications, has resigned from the company, effective December 30.
Ms. Kelly resigned for "Good Reason" under the terms of AIG's Executive Severance Plan based on the reduction in her base salary that was mandated by the Special Master for Executive Compensation for TARP Recipients.
"On behalf of the management team, employees, and the Board of Directors, I would like to thank Stasia for her tireless service to the company," said Robert H. Benmosche, AIG President and Chief Executive Officer.

We wish her well in her future endeavors."
In addition, AIG announced that Suzanne Folsom, Chief Compliance and Regulatory Officer, has left to pursue other opportunities.
"While serving as AIG's Vice President, Chief Regulatory and Compliance Officer and Deputy General Counsel, Mrs. Folsom worked diligently to strengthen the compliance, regulatory and governance framework of the company.
