At Travelers, Weill focused on growing the company’s assets with a particular emphasis on global expansion, a mission that led to the creation of Citigroup Inc., following the acquisition of Salomon Brothers in 1997 and the famous Citibank merger of 1998. Weill’s charismatic leadership style, built on strong execution and delivery of services, stock-based incentive compensation plans, and skillful blending of complimentary strengths and weaknesses, has helped to achieve his mission of building a brand name financial services company.
