Blackwater/Xe Services Hires Former Counsel for AIG

This speaks for itself:
Wherever Suzanne Folsom goes, it seems that trouble swirls around her. But it is the breadth of her experiences that led Xe Services—the private security company and military contractor formerly called Blackwater Worldwide—to hire her as its first chief regulatory/compliance officer and deputy general counsel.
Folsom embraces the idea of rebuilding shaky companies. Before this job, she battled compliance demons at the troubled American International Group, Inc., and weathered a scandal that cost her boss his job at the World Bank Group.
It didn’t hurt that Folsom has strong political ties. She has served as chief of staff to the co-chairman of the Republican National Committee; private secretary to Queen Noor in Amman, Jordan; special assistant to former First Lady Barbara Bush during the 1988 presidential campaign; Bush family liaison to the 1988 U.S. Presidential Inaugural Committee; and a behind-the-scenes leader for the 1984 and 1988 Republican national conventions.
