Working with Ace Employment has made my career change easier than I'd thought. I've had the pleasure of working with both Mark and Derek who were very helpful and kind. They placed me in a few temp positions that opened a flood-gate of great networking opportunities and they also worked with me to make sure that my career goals were met.

I ended up landing my current job with a placement from Ace and I've been here for a year at the end of this month. Overall it was a pleasure working with this company and I'm very happy and grateful for all that they've done!!!

I love Ace Employment! Although they are a temp agency, the employees are very warm and friendly (the administrative assistant could be a bit friendlier). I am on a first name basis with the CEO and his brother, and they always have my back with very positive things to say about me.
Broad range of companies to work for

It would be hard to find anyone in insurance with a longer resume than American International Group Inc.’s AIG 0.53% new chief executive Brian Duperreault.

Mr. Duperreault started as an actuarial trainee at AIG in 1973, straight out of a postcollege stint in the U.S. Army. He rose through the company’s ranks to become a senior executive, before leaving in 1994. Over the past 23 years, he has turned one niche offshore insurer into a large and diversified company, become CEO of a big industry brokerage and co-founded his own insurance firm.

In returning to AIG, his plan is straightforward: Grow AIG.

He thinks the company has shrunk enough after unloading a series of businesses to help repay a nearly $185 billion U.S. government bailout, and then selling more assets to finance share buybacks. Mr. Duperreault wants to expand in part through acquisitions as well as AIG’s life and personal lines insurance businesses, particularly internationally.

“I [was] looking at my alma mater having issues,” the 70-year-old said in his first extensive interview since taking the AIG job in May. “My head was saying, ‘Don’t do it,’ because I had a great job. But my heart was telling me otherwise.”

Over the past few weeks, Mr. Duperreault has brought in executives from outside the company and plans to increase use of data science and predictive analytics, particularly as a way to expand sales to midsize businesses.

Many of AIG’s 56,400 employees are now meeting Mr. Duperreault for the first time through town halls in New York, Boston, Chicago, London and Dublin, so far. Among things they are learning: Their new boss has deep faith. A Roman Catholic who was educated by nuns in Trenton, N.J., he later attended the Jesuit-run St. Joseph’s University in Philadelphia, Pa.

“Faith and family are the two things I wanted them to understand about me,” he said. “The most important element of running a company is doing the right thing, and faith gives one the courage to do that.”

Mr. Duperreault said he speaks publicly of his religious side “when I am being asked about who I am.” He has publicly thanked God for his successes, and keeps a Bible in his office for “when I feel that I have to read it.”

Mr. Duperreault didn’t initially aim for an insurance career. He went to St. Joe’s to study chemistry, but “I just wasn’t any good at lab work.” He majored in math, then after college he enlisted in the Army during the Vietnam War and spent three years doing clerical work at Fort Knox, Ky.

Upon discharge, job choices were limited with a stalled U.S. economy. Actuaries were in demand.

“I didn’t know anything about actuarial science,” he said. “All I know is, I needed a job.”

He was hired at AIG, then a midsize property-casualty insurer, in the early stages of its transformation into one of the world’s largest financial-services firms by its CEO, Maurice R. “Hank” Greenberg.

Mr. Duperreault’s first assignment was to create divorce insurance that would guarantee income should a marriage fail. While that product wasn’t launched, he eventually became a key lieutenant of the legendarily hard-charging Mr. Greenberg.

Mr. Duperreault said he left AIG in 1994 to determine if he had “the wherewithal to stand alone and succeed” without Mr. Greenberg.

In an interview, Mr. Greenberg said he is pleased to see Mr. Duperreault back at AIG, calling him “a good choice.” Mr. Greenberg left AIG in 2005 and now runs insurance and investment firm Starr Cos.

Mr. Duperreault replaced Peter Hancock, who lost his hold on the CEO job earlier this year after delaying profit-improvement deadlines. Mr. Hancock had been narrowing AIG’s focus through divestitures.

“I think Brian is wise in getting rid of that liquidation strategy,” said Mr. Greenberg, referring to Mr. Hancock’s divestitures. Turning around AIG “will take time, and you have to have a strategy to differentiate AIG from other companies. He’s had a lot of training, been in the industry a long time. But time will tell.”

Mr. Duperreault’s first job outside of AIG was as CEO of ACE Ltd. , which back then was a liability-insurance specialist. The job returned him to his birthplace: Bermuda, where he was born to American parents. Over the next decade, he diversified and expanded ACE through acquisitions. In 2004, he stepped down as CEO and became nonexecutive chairman.

In 2008, he became CEO of then-struggling brokerage and consulting firm Marsh & McLennan Co s. He cut costs, strengthened management and acquired smaller firms to bolster growth. He left in 2012.

The following year, while on a dinner cruise in Hamilton, Bermuda, he mentioned still having “gas in the tank” to insurance executive David Brown. Mr. Brown knew that hedge fund Two Sigma Investments, a leader in quantitative analysis, was looking to get into insurance, and he put Mr. Duperreault in contact with them.

That led to Mr. Duperreault co-founding Hamilton Insurance Group in 2013 with Two Sigma’s principals. As part of Mr. Duperreault’s new job, a Two Sigma affiliate aims to work with AIG on an insurance platform.

AIG today is far different than the one Mr. Duperreault left in 1994. Gone to repay its bailout are Asian life-insurance operations, aircraft leasing and other crown jewels. Also gone are some former rivals such as Aetna Inc. and Cigna Corp. , which divested property-casualty units. New competition has emerged, including Chubb Ltd. That insurer is the former ACE and is run by Hank Greenberg’s son Evan, who succeeded Mr. Duperreault at ACE.

“You need to have great rivalries to make you better,” Mr. Duperreault said. “So it’s actually a wonderful thing, in a way, that they’re out there and they’re so good because it’s going to make us better.”
