Aviva Europe CEO resigns on structural changes
David McMillan, chairman Aviva Global Health Insurance and CEO Aviva Europe, has chosen to leave Aviva as the insurer merges its UK activities.
Aviva is bringing its UK insurance businesses together - life insurance, general insurance and health insurance. The merged operations will be led by Andy Briggs, who will become CEO UK Insurance, responsible for all Aviva’s insurance businesses in the UK.
In addition, Maurice Tulloch will become CEO International Insurance, responsible for Aviva’s insurance operations in France, Canada, Ireland, Spain, Italy, Poland, Turkey and India.
Both appointments are subject to regulatory approval.
Aviva Investors, Aviva Asia and the Digital businesses will remain as separate entities.
Mark Wilson, group chief executive officer, said: “I would like to thank David for his considerable contribution to Aviva over the last 14 years. Most recently he has been instrumental in turning round Aviva’s European operations while accelerating the build of our global health insurance business. We wish him well for the future.
“Aviva is entering a new phase in its transformation. We have fixed the balance sheet, focused the business, and turned the operating performance around. The business is developing rapidly.
“We see significant opportunities to differentiate our business in the UK post-Brexit. We like the UK, we are investing in the UK, and we are growing in the UK."
