About Sandy Weill

An internationally renowned banker, financial industry leader and philanthropist with more than five decades of experience, Weill retired as CEO of Citigroup on October 1, 2003, and served as non-executive chairman until April 18, 2006. Founded 200 years ago, Citigroup is currently the third largest bank holding company in the United States by assets and has the world’s largest financial services network.

Weill, who had been chairman and CEO of Travelers, became chairman of its predecessor, Commercial Credit Company, in 1986, successfully leading the company through a public stock offering by its then-parent, Control Data Corporation. Commercial Credit acquired Primerica Corporation in 1988 and adopted its name until 1993, when Primerica acquired The Travelers Corporation and adopted the Travelers Group name. In 1997 the company acquired Salomon Inc. and combined it with its Smith Barney unit to form the global securities and investment firm, Salomon Smith Barney. Read more
