AIG CEO Defends Holiday Villa Overlooking Adriatic

Wearing flip-flops, khaki shorts and a green polo shirt, the new chief executive of bailed-out insurer American International Group Inc says he’s getting a lot of work done from his massive villa overlooking the Adriatic. “People criticize me for being on vacation. I actually started work a week before I was actually supposed to,” Robert Benmosche told Reuters in an interview. “I do have conference calls every day, I have all my information sent here. I can work here as well as in the office in New York.”
