December 7, 2011

The China General Chamber of Commerce – U.S.A. has honored Maurice R. Greenberg for his contributions toward U.S. and China exchanges. The organization’s Win-Win Award was presented to the insurance executive at the group’s dinner in New York City that marked CGCC-USA’s six years of service to Chinese enterprises in America.

Greenberg is chairman and CEO of insurers C. V. Starr & Co. Inc. and Starr International USA Inc., collectively known as Starr Companies.

“I am honored to receive this award. At Starr, we see great potential in the Chinese business community, both in China as well as in the United States,” Greenberg said.

The history of Starr Companies can be traced back to 1919, when Cornelius Vander Starr founded an insurance agency in Shanghai, China. Throughout the 1920s, Starr established branches across China, and in Hong Kong, Hanoi, Saigon, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur and the Philippines.
