AIG has appointed John Repko as executive vice president and chief information officer.

Repko replaces Martha Gallo at the helm of the carrier’s IT and technology function. The insurer said Gallo is leaving to pursue other interests.

In his new role, Repko will report to Brian Duperreault, AIG’s president and chief executive officer. He will also serve as a member of AIG’s executive leadership team.

He will be responsible for AIG’s global technology strategy - overseeing core shared infrastructure, technology partnerships and process engineering efforts.

Repko joins AIG from electronics manufacturer Johnson Controls, where he has served as global chief information officer from 2016.

He was previously senior vice president, chief information officer and enterprise transformation leader at Tyco from 2012, a role that included responsibility for IT, process, shared services and transformation.

“The intersection of technology with the data and expertise at AIG to drive business results is a compelling proposition for me,” Repko said.

“I look forward to collaborating with the company’s talented leaders and global IT team to continue shaping the technology strategy to deliver value across the organisation,” he added.

“John is a results-oriented, versatile business leader with the rare combination of finance and technology expertise,” Duperreault said.

“He is a seasoned Chief Information Officer, with a long and successful track record of completing large scale process improvements and technology transformations,” he went on.

“I want to thank Martha Gallo for her work as Chief Information Officer at an important, transitional time for the company.”
