Blackwater/Xe Services Hires Former Counsel for AIG

Posted by defensebaseactcomp on September 6, 2011

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.

    Humm. Another chronny!!! Xe/Blackwater is going to need her as their image will never change until they right the wrongs the company has committed in the past. The tax class action that I read about has teeth. I heard through the grape vine they are trying to get out of it with a bogus contract they had the guys sign without providing copies or allowing them to read. If they didnt sign a do it quick they would be fired.

    I hope they are not holding onto that defense because it won’t work this time. I hear it violates contract law on several levels.
