AIG has signed a three-year deal with former All Blacks rugby player Richie McCaw to act as a global ambassador for the company.
The contract builds on AIG’s relationship with New Zealand Rugby, as a major global sponsor of six national teams, as well as its sponsorship of USA Rugby.
“Working with an ambassador of Richie’s stature provides great opportunities to communicate the quality of our products and services,” said Danny Glantz, global head of sponsorship for AIG.
“He exemplifies the values that we associate with rugby as well as having specific skills and experience that speak directly to our core products and services, including aviation.
