Evan Greenberg, Chubb
Chairman and CEO
Over the course of more than 40 years in the insurance industry, Evan Greenberg has gained significant insight into the global property, casualty and life insurance sectors – and all without a college degree. (While Greenberg attended New York University, he did not earn a degree.)
Prior to joining ACE in 2001 as vice chairman, Greenberg spent 25 years at AIG, where he served under his father, Hank Greenberg, as president and chief operating officer from 1997 to 2000. At ACE, Greenberg and fellow executives took the then low-profile insurer and built it into a global giant with a $36 billion market value, which merged with Chubb in 2016.
In addition to overseeing Chubb, Greenberg serves as chair of the US-China Business Council and vice chair of the National Committee on US-China Relations. He also sits on the boards of Rockefeller University, the Center for Strategic and International Studies, and the Peterson Institute for International Economics. In addition, Greenberg was appointed by President Trump in 2018 to the US Trade Representative’s Advisory Committee for Trade Policy and Negotiations. He is also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and an overseer of the International Rescue Committee.
