Friday, August 29, 2014

PHILADELPHIA (August 28, 2014) – Saint Joseph’s University’s Academy of Risk Management and Insurance (ARMI) will present its Insurance Executive of the Year award to ACE Limited Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Evan G. Greenberg. The University will award Greenberg during a dinner honoring him at the Union League in Philadelphia on Tuesday, Sept. 16, at 6 p.m.

Proceeds from the event will help to fund the more than $150,000 provided in annual scholarships to SJU's risk management and insurance students. 

“Evan is recognized globally as a leading voice of the insurance industry,” says Mike Angelina, executive director of the University's Academy of Risk Management and Insurance. “Already established as one of the world’s preeminent multi-line property and casualty insurers, ACE continues to break new ground under his leadership as it enters into new markets in Asia and South America. Evan’s commitment to excellence exemplifies the qualities we seek to instill in our students.”

Greenberg, a 35-year veteran of the insurance industry, has held various underwriting and management positions and gained significant insight in the global property, casualty and life insurance sectors. He was elected to his current position at ACE in May 2004, and to the additional title of chairman of the Board of Directors in May 2007. Prior to ACE, he spent 25 years at American International Group, where he served as president and chief operating officer from 1997 to 2000. 

The Academy of Risk Management and Insurance was established in 2006 to promote and support the concept of risk management and insurance education at Saint Joseph's University. Currently ranked No. 11 in the nation by U.S. News & World Report, the risk management and insurance major is under the direction of a Board of Governors, a group of 41 insurance executives who provide counsel to faculty and help foster collaboration between students and the industry. Part of the University’s Haub School of Business, the Academy of Risk Management and Insurance has witnessed a 100 percent job placement success rate for its students in the past two years.
