Greenberg has been named an honorary citizen of Shanghai and was appointed as a Senior Economic Advisor to the Beijing Municipal Government.

In 2018, Greenberg was awarded the China Reform Friendship Medal for helping to open up China’s economy to the world.

Under Mr. Greenberg’s leadership, Starr has invested more than $1 billion in China since 2005. Starr led the IPO for the People’s Insurance Company of China (PICC), and acquired Dazhong Insurance, the first privatization of a state-owned insurance company.
