Macia will lead the new platform, the acquisition of which is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2017, as well as play a crucial role in developing Attune, the data- and technology-driven joint venture by AIG, Hamilton, and Two Sigma Investments, LP, that focuses on the $150 billion small commercial insurance segment.

Her perspective will be a valuable one to have on our leadership team.”
