Articles - Aviva in another top management shuffle

 As Aviva moves into the next stage of its transformation, Mark Wilson, Group CEO, has made a number of appointments to strengthen his leadership team. These changes have three clear aims: first, to ensure Aviva has strong business leaders in all its key markets; second, to drive outstanding execution; and third, to enhance some of Aviva’s core insurance centres of excellence globally.

 David McMillan has been appointed ceo of Aviva Europe. He will be the member of the Group Executive accountable for businesses in Spain, Italy, Turkey, Poland, Lithuania and Russia and he will become chair of Aviva’s French Board. Most recently he was Group Transformation director and before that was ceo of Aviva’s UK General Insurance business. This appointment recognises his positive impact on the business during his time as Transformation Director.

 Nick Amin is joining Aviva as Group Transformation director and will become a member of the Group Executive, reporting to Wilson. Nick has a very strong background in driving change across multiple cultures and geographies in the insurance sector, in both Cigna and AIA. Nick was instrumental in the transformation of AIA and preparing the company for IPO.

 Jason Windsor will join the Group Executive as Chief Strategy and Development officer. This appointment recognises the success and ability he demonstrated over the past 12 months leading Aviva’s strategic review and disposal programme.

 Aviva Investors is a core asset of the Group and Windsor will take on the additional executive responsibility of Aviva Investors, reporting to Wilson. He will work with Paul Abberley, Aviva Investors’ interim ceo, to ensure the business is positioned to perform to its potential. Pat Regan will continue as chairman of Aviva Investors in addition to his other responsibilities.

 David Angulo will broaden his remit to take on global responsibility for driving the development of our bancassurance distribution across Aviva. He will work alongside our business leaders to improve value from existing relationships and support the development of new relationships. David will report to Amin.

 These changes are with immediate effect and subject to appropriate regulatory approval. They follow the announcement on 28th January of the appointment of Khor Hock Seng as ceo of Aviva Asia.

 As a result of these changes Trevor Matthews will not stand for re-election at the 2013 Annual General Meeting and will step down from the Board on the day prior to this year’s AGM. HE has broad insurance experience and he has added stability to the Group’s developed markets during a period of business change. He will continue in an advisory capacity for a number of months to ensure a smooth transition of his responsibilities.

 Wilson said “These changes are about ensuring we have the right people in the right jobs and that we have the best possible leadership team so Aviva can achieve its undoubted potential. David McMillan’s and Jason Windsor’s new roles recognise the strength of their achievements during 2012. Nick Amin and Khor Hock Seng are exceptional additions to the team. I would also like to thank Trevor Matthews for his considerable contribution to Aviva and wish him well for his future.”
