Sullivan presided over many of the disastrous decisions that led to the insurance giant’s collapse in 2008, the year he was forced out. AIG became the biggest bailout in corporate history. Last year, the London-based insurance firm Willis Group named Sullivan its deputy chairman and put him in charge of a new global-services division. He could earn close to $2 million per year, plus bigger bonuses if he stays for three years.
