Benmosche Decides to Stay Put for the Time Being

By julie steinberg

AIG chief Robert Benmosche has embodied the perennial problem of dating over the past few weeks. Can he -- and will he -- finally commit?

To the delight of romantic comedy enthusiasts everywhere, it turns out that he can and will. He reaffirmed his intention to stay and, in response, the financial-services company moved ahead with a previously-announced compensation package. Benmosche will pocket $7 million in cash and stock, all because he mustered up the three little words everyone was dying to hear: "I won't leave."

And just in time for Thanksgiving! We're sure all of the AIG board's families will crowd around their turkey-day feast, thankful for Benmosche's decision -- until he gets into another fight with directors and government simultaneously. A Christmas saga, perhaps?
