Articles - Aviva appoints Glyn Barker as non-executive director


 Aviva plc (“Aviva”) has appointed Glyn Barker as an independent non-executive director with effect from 27 February 2012.

 Mr Barker was most recently Vice Chairman, UK of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP (PwC) and was responsible for leading the PwC Executive team for the Europe, Middle East, Africa and India (EMEAI) region, following a long and successful career with the firm. He is currently a non-executive director of The Berkeley Group Holdings plc and a trustee of English National Opera.

 During his career as a partner at PwC, Mr Barker advised the boards of several FTSE100 companies on a wide variety of corporate and financial issues. As well as serving as PwC’s UK Vice Chairman, he was formerly PwC’s UK Managing Partner, UK Head of Assurance and a member of its UK management board. He also built PwC’s private equity focused Transactions business.

 Lord Sharman of Redlynch, chairman of Aviva, said: “Glyn Barker is a very welcome addition to the Aviva board. His experience, both as a professional advisor to major companies and a senior member of PwC’s management team, will stand him in great stead for his non-executive role at Aviva. This, combined with his wealth of audit and regulatory knowledge, will further strengthen the Aviva board.”

 John McFarlane, chairman designate of Aviva, said: “I am glad that Glyn, as a senior finance and audit professional, is joining our board. I have already been impressed by his diligence and preparation prior to joining, and this augurs well for his future contribution to the board and ultimately to the success of Aviva.”
